    Hi, Does anyone know if α gluco-oligosaccharide is a FODMAP? I can only find information on fructo- and galacto oligosaccharides which are definitely on the FODMAP list. I have been looking at a supplement that is supposed to help protect your microbiome but it contains this and I'm not sure if...

    I've found plenty of IBS tracking diaries, and Migraine tracking diaries. But what I need is a diary to track them both on one chart. Does anyone here know where I can find a IBS & Migraines Tracking Diary? A cellphone app will not help me at all. I don't have a cellphone. Yes...

    Guy from NY in my late 30's. My suffering with IBS, with bouts of Diarrhea & Constipation stem from my battle with Epilepsy. I've been living with Epilepsy since grammar school. Over the years I have been on various meds & med combos. I've been on over ten different medications for my...

    IBS has many sub-types: IBS-C (constipation predominant), IBS-D (diarrhea predominant), IBS-alternating (both constipation and diarrhea), IBS post-infectious (IBS caused as a result of gastrointestinal infection), and Leaky Gas (not officially recognised as an IBS sub-type). Bacteria IBS is...

    Hi All, I am doing strict low Fodmaps. Just started a few days ago. But I have a predicament: I have to take psyllium fiber (Konsyl) 2 or 3 times a day, via shaker cup with fruit juice to mix it in. What juices can I use which would be Fodmaps safe? Or, what other liquids could I consider...

    I've been on the FODMAP diet since 2013, but not all that strictly. It was just the last 4 or 5 months that I've been on the Paleo Autoimmune diet as well and have been totally grain free. I eat animal protein and low FODMAP vegetables and seem to get away with one banana a day. If I stick to...

    The second question would be: Do we actually have an inflamed gut or Leaky Gut and how do we know our problems aren't just related to bacterial imbalance? We tend to separate the IBS sub-types on this board: IBS-C, IBS-D, Leaky Gas, etc as though they are distinct disorders and somehow unique...

    We need high levels of stomach acid in order to digest all our food, carbohydrates as well as proteins. Chris Kresser and Norm Robillard wrote some very interesting articles about low stomach acid and H.Pylori, a bacteria that lives in the stomach. These articles are mainly GERD related but the...

    I have diarrhea, can you help? I have Diabetes Type 1 and diarrhea. The diabetes gets insulin and a low-carb diet, my BMI is 24, HbA1c around 5.5% and my Coronary Artery Calcium Score is zero. Diabetes sorted - diarrhea, not so much … I got acid indigestion and diarrhea nearly three...

    I've gathered a lot of information on carbohydrates over the years and I thought it might help to put all the notes together in an easy to read form. Low carb VS low starch It can be confusing when people refer to diets which are low-carb. This term is often used interchangeably with...

    Bacterial gasses are bioactive and can affect intestinal transit. Most people are predominantly methane or hydrogen producers. In IBS, hydrogen producers tend to be diarrhea-predominant and methane producers, constipation-predominant. Overproduction of gas is generally caused by carbohydrate...

    Most IBS diets offer their own version of comfort foods but I haven't found any I could tolerate. There are 3 food types that feed a bacterial overbalance: starches, high FODMAPs and fibre (all fibre, whether soluble or insoluble). So an ideal comfort food would have to be filling but not...

    A lot of people here believe that they have underlying physical reasons for their IBS, and that diet makes no difference. If this is true then a meal made up of Brussels sprouts, baked beans and pizza will have the same effects as steamed fish, mashed potato and pumpkin. It's possible that most...

    I am a dietitian who has had IBS for nearly 20 years. I read these posts on here and I so get what you are going through. I want to hug all of you! I think these support groups are so awesome because having IBS can be such an isolating experience. It helps so much to feel we aren't alone...

    Whether or not we actually have SIBO might not be all that relevant as SIBO diet management helps both IBS and SIBO. The only way to be certain we have SIBO is testing, but this isn't an accurate science at this point in time. SIBO, an overgrowth of bacteria in the small intestine, affects both...

    This is one of the toughest questions for anyone with IBS. The low FODMAP diet, which reduces IBS symptoms by excluding gas-producing foods in only supposed to be temporary. High FODMAPs which form butyrate are generally healthy for the colon and should be gradually reintroduced. The...
