  6. Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD)
    I have been battling GERD for years. After being on a PPI for quite a while, my symptoms worsened, then was diagnosed with IBS-C and SIBO, being hydrogen positive and fructose intolerant.

  7. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    There are many lists of good and bad foods for a fodmap diet. But most are categorized by food group and then alphabetically. I believe that there is a spectrum of best to worst. In other words, is watermelon only moderately bad, or is it the worst thing to indulge. This is only an example...

  11. General Discussion
    I'm sad it's come to this, because I really didn't want to have to rant on the internet about my problems, but I've tried everything else. I also feel like it's good to type it all out there, as a record, so that if I do end up dying, someone in my family can read this and use it to sue the...
  12. IBS Diarrhea (IBS-D)
    Once every few months for the past 2 years, I wake up usually in early morning and have diarrhea followed by gas bloating, nausea, and vomiting.

  16. Diet
    Hi all, I'm new to following the low fodmap diet, 2 weeks into elimination phase. Overall the low fodmap diet is helping my IBS symptoms, which I'm really happy with.

  19. Diet
    I officially started it today, I've done my research but I haven't had a chance to consult with my doctor yet about how I should feel during the process.
