  3. IBS Constipation (IBS-C) and Chronic Constipation
    Hello All, I just wanted to share a couple of things that I have done which have given me some success. First I must say that I have struggled with constipation my entire life.

  4. Your Story
    Hi y'all. I am a 72 year old man whose IBS-C was as severe as the disease gets. It stemmed from an almost fatal giardiasis parasitic infection twelve (12) years ago. I will relate what happened to me and how I eventually discovered a method of recovery. This disease in its most severe form is...
  5. IBS Constipation (IBS-C) and Chronic Constipation
    Being on low FODMAPS/SCD, I find it hard to get a lot of good fiber. I have been reading up on Cellulose, and that it is good for people with bacteria issues because it doesn't feed the bacteria. I am thinking of buying a cellulose supplement. Has anyone tried it? Does it help with regularity?
  6. General Discussion
    Hi, almost 2 months ago I was admitted into the ER because I suddenly had some horrific stomach pains and a horrible painful diarrhea episode. Now, I've been known to have stomach aches every now and then, but usually I can attribute that to some bad eating habits or they're not terrible enough...
  7. General Discussion

  10. IBS Constipation (IBS-C) and Chronic Constipation
    For decades I had what seems like a sluggish bowel so fiber in the diet helped a great deal. IBS first showed up several months ago after two rounds of antibiotic (for tooth pain/abscess after unsuccessful root canal). I thought the FODMAP diet might help and plan to follow it in March along...
  11. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)

  13. Diet
    Fodmap diet should be done with a dietician/nutritionist, but most insurances don't cover them.

Diverticulosis is the only firm diagnosis I have - following my recent post-55 sigmoidoscopy.at the end of last year. I have had permanent near-diarreah for maybe 8...
