I am a 17 year sufferer. One of those that knows without a doubt, my psychologial state, and hormones play a huge role in my disease. I also have never been able to pin down food irritants...and I have tried every way I know to do so.Alcohol is always listed in the "irritants". Do some of you more informed than me, know why this is so? I understand that it is fermented, etc....but I love a glass of wine or two. It is one of those things that I have never noticed to upset my system or give me D...but with up to 72 hours to figure this out..who knows? AND, I have gone up to a month without any alcohol and didn't notice any difference at all.What is the reality of alcohol contributing to D?
