I have type D IBS, I've had it for about 8 years now. I know that stress triggers it for me alot. I've just recently deided to take this bull by the horns and deal with it. I've been reading alot from Heather Vorous and working on my diet, and taking alot of fibercon. What else can I do. Does the Caltrate really work that good. I've even been tolerating soy milk. I would just like for someone to kinda point me in the right direction. Thanks

WALTM,It seems logical to put a person with kidney stones on a low calcium diet, but that actually encourages more stone formation. As calcium levels drop, oxalate levels rise, and high oxalate concentration in the urine promotes stone formation. Sometimes doctors tell their patients to avoid foods like chocolate, nuts beets, rhubarb, spinach strawberries and wheat bran the foods that are high in oxalates.Drinking water is important for sltone prevention just sip water throughout the day.Linda
