I had one dr. tell me that when you don't eat enough, the "D" can be worse. There isn't enough bulk continuing through your system. But, I'm not sure. Good luck.

I've always needed to eat on schedule.Some people seem to need to eat regularly more than others. I don't understand people who can forget to eat for a day or two (and I have friends like that)Generally if I try to skip a meal I get weak, light headed, and nauseated. If I wait another 30 minutes after starting to feel bad I will throw up bile or stomach acid or some other equally nasty bodily fluid.Didn't take too many times of that to learn to eat when the body needs it.I've been this way since before I had IBS, so I don't think it is related to it.K.------------------I have no financial, academic, or any other stake in any commercial product mentioned by me.And from the as if IBS isn't enough of a worry file...from New Scientist's Feedback column: photographed on the door of a ladies' loo in the Sequoia National Park in California by reader Liz Masterman: "Please keep door closed to discourage bears from entering."
