I have had major IBS like problems since stomach surgery 18 years ago. No one food seems to trigger D but something sweet in the morning will cestainly guarantee it. Often food goes through unprocessed. Calcium may help a little (I think) Well this morning I had a breath test done that said I was major lactose intolerant. OK, so what? I was given this long list of foods not to eat (many of which I love) but in my long experiences lactose containing foods havent been any worse than amything else. Sometimes I think water gives me D. Does IBS and lactose tend to go hand in hand? Do I do all the things for both? I am most distressed at present and will appreciate any thoughs you may have on this.
