I've been eating those little clementine oranges since Halloween. I made some of those pumpkin faces on them to give out when I thought I would run out of candy (and I would have). I haven't had problems with eating them. I always seem to do okay with Cuties. I was a little worried today, but it was with ham and a cheeseburger, so I took two Immodium. I made it through the day okay.

Citrus, tomato, raw onion and red meats are some of my triggers.
Sometimes i can have these with no problems and other times, i'm in trouble.
It's totally fustrating.

I don't think I have any negative affects from citrus foods. I often eat 2 tangerines at night to curb my need for something sweet and I can't think of a time it has caused me problems. I will have to monitor this though.

If you focus on results, you will never change. If you focus on change, you will get results.

I find that the citrus isn't particularly what sets of my D. I ate some cuties today and was fine, even after I had an attack earlier. Of course, who knows what will happen tomorrow. Tomatoes can be a big factor, though, but they are like what Donna said, fine one day and set things off the next.

Donna - yes, it happens to me often that I eat a certain food one day and I am fine. The next day I eat it and may get D. It is so frustrasting.

Donna, I have the same problem with something being fine one time and the next it sets things off. I just hate that. I have been doing really good the last few weeks, but today I took a friend out to lunch for her birthday and ended up with a major problem when we stopped at the store on the way home. I am so mad and frustrated.

I just ate a tangerine, so we shall see.

The thing that I find weird is that I can eat certain thing and they won't bother me, then the next time that I eat them I am running to the bath room.

Do any of you go through this?

Thanks for the replies. I thought maybe I was imagining it. I know that for me sugar is a trigger but I blame that on the metformin since I can indulge in a large reg pop when not on metformin without a problem but drink that same beverage when I'm taking my meds as I should and forget it. I at first thought that the citrus was just a whole fruit trigger because I was getting the fiber from the pulp but have found recently that just OJ will do the same thing. I hope I can find a happy medium but right now even one clementine will send me to the bathroom so who knows.

I agree with the citrus cause a few weeks ago I was very sick from a bacteria in food...I had bad D for days..had to see the Dr. I was on a strict diet of no sugar...so that meant no sugar in food and fruits as well. I had a list of fruits that was good to eat like berries (frozen is good) papayas, grapefruits and a few others..Some fruits have a lot of sugar...bad bacteria in the bowels feed on sugar...so it all makes sense to me. I'm also not eating as much fruits as I used to.

I cut out the bread cause there's lots of sugar in a slice of bread. I'm telling you that my bowels have never been so good..no more D..I'm in heaven after so many stressful years of IBS.

This is working for me so I'm sticking to it. I'm also putting a cup of rice water in my morning smoothie...a friend told me that this was an old recipe of her mothers to boil rice with lots of water and then drink the left over water. It's to help with D but I haven't really researched that yet.

HI,I never even thought about citrus. I know that if I drink OJ, I usually end up with D.
Right now I am having the other problem. My stomach is so bloated.
I haven't decided which one is the worst.
Thank you for bringing up citrus. I will have to see what happens when I eat fruit.

I do take the metformin 500 mg. That hasn't been bothering me lately. When I have been really trying to keep my carbs low I have not been having problems with the D like I was. That is why I think it is the carbs.

Do you take metformin for your diabetes? I know that when I am heavy on carbs it can trigger a problem but that has always been linked to metformin for me.

I can't really remember anything with strictly citrus, but I know that eating too much fruit at a time will cause mine. Lately I am finding that there is a link between carbohydrates and D for me. I can get away with bread, though, but I am not supposed to because I have diabetes, so I am not eating as much of it. I am really trying to keep my carbs below 100g/day.

I know we all have different triggers but I'm just curious if anyone else has noticed a problem with citrus intake and D flareups?
