I've noticed a few people saying that fresh fruit juices trigger off their IBS, is this common. I love fresh orange and am known for drinking a carton a day, according to what people are writing this cannot be good for me and my IBS. Is this true for most people and if so why? Also is there anything else that you could suggest that may be making my IBS worse. By the way I mostly have IBS C-type although I do get the D-type as well. I look forward to reading your posts.

angelfate - Hi. Welcome to the board.Now thats interesting, what you've asked. I don't normally drink juice but this last Sunday we went for brunch. Juice was included. I drank quite a bit of it actually since we had a lousy waitress that never did bring us any water, which is what I normally drink. And afterwards, I was a little loose. So, perhaps there is something to your juice question. Or else it was a coincidence for me that day. But I definitely was suffering from a bit of "D" on Sunday after that brunch.

Hi angelfate, Welcome to the BB. After I was diagnosed I did a food diary for 30 days that I got out of one of the IBS books. I was an alternating C & D but mostly C now. For me I found all fruit and anything with corn syrup gives me D and nasty gas. I believe it's the fructose and sorbitol (natural sugars. Even people without IBS can easily be bothered by sorbitol. I think the rest of my problems are fiber and STRESS! You'll get lots of great info. here.

I drink a lot of fruit juice (or USED to!) Prefer miilk now that I KNOW it is not a trigger, and have added it back into my diet. I found not the juice, but the PULP to ne the nasty stuff. Carry a small strainer, and ask for a second glass. Strain the pulp, and no problem. Cranberry juice, one of my favorites tends to give me dark looser stools if I drink it like water, and I do, but boy is it good!------------------Praying with Bettie for a cure for this NASTY IBS!

Thanks everyone who posted, I definately think that the citric acid in juices makes my IBS worse, but maybe it is just a coincidence. I'm trying to cut down on it at the moment. Have you tried cranberry and raspberry juice together? That is yummy too, and helps a lot of medical conditions too, especially for women.angelfate
