Thnaks for the link eric I have a question I hope you can help with. Im pretty new to the BB and have been having a really tough time lastly with D attacks if I eat anything beside Grain bread and soup and Turkey coldcuts. I read the info in the link and have seen in lots of posts that one of the most common IBS complants is that you feel like you have to go to the bathroom very soon after eating. I dont have this at all. I almost never get a bad D attack excert for vert late at night or early morning. For instance I went out to eat last night for Mothers day, ate at 9 alseep my 12 bad D at 8 this morning. Sometimes it startes as early as 11pm if i eat at 6 but very ralrly before the next morning. I wounder if i have IBS at all or if its just a popular diognisis as of late. any input you can give will be a big help....Haize
Bh,we are all diffferent so food going through us is gonna be different for each of us and can depend on what foods you eat, the amounts of food you eat(portions), what time of day you eat and actually how you are feeling that day as well as how certain foods interact(chemically as well as hot verses cold etc..) and how they effect us individually. For some fermenting sugars in the gut can cause fermentation and hence bloating and gas for example.Its hard for me to keep up with the tests done for everyone but that would be my first question. The tests are really important, blood, stool, thyroid(blood test), sig, colonoscopy etc. etc.Examining your eating patterns and what you eat is crucial, if it were wheat that bothers you for example, it could perhaps be celaic sprue.Things to consider and learning as much about yourself and ibs and other conditions is important and being aware of and monitoring your body's reactions to things is also important, many people keep a diary and that its a good idea in the begining for just this reason. There is alot to this and it boils down to us individually and being aware of your bodies reactions and what is causing what.------------------ http://webpotential.com/ericibs/index.htm
