  1. Your Story
    Hi all, I joined to share my story, as without all the communities and blogs around I would have been much worse right now and there is still not enough sharing around this condition. I just got diagnosed with SIBO, but I had to wait a year from my first visit to the GP to getting diagnosed...
  2. Diet
    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...
  3. General Discussion
    I recently tried the specific carbohydrate diet and ended up worse off because of the higher protein intake. Proteins need fats and carbohydrates in order to be digested fully. A diet high in protein and low in carbs or fats is toxic to the body. I found this out the hard way. Bacteria feed...

    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...

There are higher levels of GnRH IgM antibodies in patients with IBS and dysmotility. IBS patients also tend to have higher levels of C-reactive protein, a...

    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...

    Starch (grams of starch per 100 gram serving size) (LF) = low FODMAP. Considered safe on low FODMAP diet. (*LF with caution) (HF) = high FODMAP. Not recommended on low FODMAP diet. Fibre: grams per 100 gram serving Kelloggs Rice Krispies (LF) 72.07 Pretzels (HF)...
  10. Diet
    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...

    This is my list of flatulence-causing foods, from worst to best. This is just my personal list and I'm constantly working on this, changing things around. Everyone's list will be different, but I'm guessing the typical problem foods like alcohol, legumes, milk, bread etc will be at the top for...

    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...
