If your test shows you have a bacterial infection going on, that is most likely it. A lower carb diet with fruits and veggies should not cause that much distress as with a diet full of fiber from grains. In addition, chills are not usually common with extra fiber in the diet, but with a bacteria infection. Take your Dr's advice and than go from there. Since I have significantly reduced the amount of grains in my diet, my GI distress is less.
I'm taking a stab at this and using trial and error. I think I am eating too much fiber. Any thoughts?? I am on my own low carb diet plan and I've really increased my veggie and fruit intake. Could that be the culprit??
Not new to SP. I need help and advice. So I've had bad GI symptoms for a month now and they inlcude abdominal pains, nausea, diarrhea or soft stools and chills. After many tests I was told today that it's probably a bacterial infection that has to work it's way out. In the meantime I am feeling terrible!! The GI suggested using Align which I will try. But I need food help and suggestions. Please reply!!
