Donna, I hope you feel better soon!

Fancy, my dr. gave me a new rx yesterday called digex nf. It's supposed to help relax the digestive system when you eat. I take it 30 minutes before each meal. I'll let you know how it works.

I keep hearing and reading that glutamine is a healer for intestines and one of the health food stores had it on sale, so I got some today on my way home. The lady there also suggested aloe juice, but I can't afford to get that now. I did look and they have it in different flavors and one is a big bottle of wild berry, so I might try that in the future. I did end up taking something this morning so I would not have any problems at my class (diabetes class).

emoticon We are all so different! I had a bout of diverticulitis and my doctor recommended 30 grams of fiber per day. I usually eat Fiber One cereal with almond milk and I get most of my fiber for the whole day. When I do that I don't have any problems with my IBS. When I have less fiber or none in the morning I have to be careful with everything I eat. I guess that's why this disease is so hard to figure out.
I hope all of you find what works for you so you can feel better.

I don't typically eat fiber rich foods because every time I do it kicks off the IBS. Usually it is the D, but the cabbage family causes gas problems. I wouldn't think that two bites of something would cause problems, but it did.

Do you typically eat fiber rich foods? If your body isn't used to fiber, the gas can be terrible. Most fruits and vegetables will help with keeping you healthy, but you need to slowly add it to your diet if you aren't used to it. Start with low fiber fruits & veggies and then add more grams of fiber as your body gets used to it. We eat a lot of fiber because one of my drs gave me a target fiber count that I should have per day and it's not for the faint of heart.

I will have red meat when I can afford some, but that isn't very often. I get the 90-93% lean ground beef and haven't been able to afford a roast for months, but I did finally cook my last one. That doesn't seem to bother me usually. I usually have chicken. With my problems with vegetables the cheap meat is what I mainly end up with.

Last night I tried to have some broccoli since that is supposed to be good against cancer, but only had about two bites because I was having trouble chewing it. With only two bites the gas got so bad a half hour later that it felt like I was having a heart attack. I am tired of that. To try to keep the cancer away they say to eat certain vegetables, but I cannot eat them. Often have the same problem with cole slaw. Of course, they are both in the same family.

We used to be huge meat eaters until I had to give up red meat (beef & pork) due to joint pain. At the time my husband was on cholesterol meds. I no longer cook red meat and he cooks it maybe once a week when we grill out, or he'll eat it at lunch sometimes. I'm glad to say he's off the cholesterol meds.

I too hate that I live a life of eliminating foods, but I like not living with a painful belly more. It also helps for the weight loss. If I ate the way I used to, I would still weigh the same (or worse!).

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

I agree with everything you said, Donna.

Velma, I am sorry that you are having to give up everything, too.

It seems like every time we figure out what might be causing the problems and try giving it up, something else pops up that will trigger problems and we have to give it up too.

I got this link in my email that might help some people. I don't know what anything will do, but I just added the curry to my egg salad today (of course the egg salad might set me off, too).

I'm so tired of Giving up foods. Before we know it we won't be eating much of anything.
Someone mentioned trying baby food to see how that would work out.
I would really have to think about that for awhile!!

I've had pain ever since the horrid prednisone finally left my system in October every time I eat. When I eat fats (good and bad), I feel nauseous. Otherwise, it's a traveling pain in my abdomen. They've run every test on my gallbladder and I've had an endoscopy where everything came out perfectly fine. My last colonoscopy was because they thought I possibly had scar tissue from my ulcerative colitis, but there isn't enough there to cause the pain I'm having. So, it's back to the possibility of the foods I eat. I'm back on dicyclomine and omeprazole now that they've removed some conflicting meds I was on and I was doing perfectly fine over the weekend until I had a plain baked potato with my meal Saturday night and within minutes of eating, I had pain. So, I may give up potatoes for a bit to see how that goes. I'll also talk to my GI dr. on Weds to see if she has any other suggestions. So tired of being so careful of what I eat (I can't tolerate any dairy or red meat). Giving up another food is not going to be fun.

Velma, my body hasn't loved the potatoes too well lately, either. And they used to be something I could have with no problem. I can do okay with the instant mashed, but the others don't work so well anymore. And I'd rather make my potato soup than the mashed unless I'm in a big hurry.

I realized over the weekend that part of my pain is possibly coming from potatoes. Who doesn't love potatoes? Apparently, not my body.

I was talking to my friend that was with me yesterday and she said she thinks it was onions that have been causing my problems this time. There were onions in the Chinese food that I had two weeks ago and I have been putting something onion in a lot of things that I have been eating since then, like the tortilla soup and chili when it was cold last week. Then I ate the onion soup yesterday and it didn't take very long before I got sick. So I will not be adding onion or onion powder to things for a while. I guess that means I will have to freeze the roast I just made, too.

Thanks for everyone's suggestions.

Oh yes, it can be very frustrating finding what is causing your immediate problem, but as soon as you do, relief isn't too far behind. Could have been any combination of things for you yesterday. Something in the onion soup, or in the salad...who knows.

That sounds like a good idea,especially right now. I really have to think about what I can eat with no problem. Right now I don't know anything that will work for me, but I will try to figure it out and try that. Yesterday I had some onion soup and about 4 bites of salad and that did me in, besides which I got dehydrated and almost passed out in a store. I am getting really tired of this.

You might try a restart diet to give yourself a break. As in, eat something you absolutely know you can have (for me it's rice, but I know you probably cant eat much rice with diabetes) and then very slowly add things in that you think you can have (my next step is turkey). and go from there. I have to do that when I'm in a severe ulcerative colitis flare. Even though I'm now in remission, I can eat all the fiber I want, but the slightest dairy sends me running to the bathroom. Hopefully your gut calms down soon and you can get back to foods you love and enjoy.

I haven't had that much milk. Heck, I have been having half my milk left when it is past the expiration date.

I know that fiber has something to do with the problem and sometimes it will be sugar if I have something with that in it (sometimes not). Today my friend and I went to Panera Bread and I had a soup and salad combo. I ended up getting sick and I had even taken an Immodium before that. I also got very dizzy because I got dehydrated. And I learned something about not having enough water today and getting dizzy.

Milk is a problem for me. So are high fat foods even healthy fats. I can tolerate more vegetable fat than animal fat. I was vegetarian for 17 years so high fiber foods aren't a problem. High protein can be a problem. I often forget what's a trigger and eat that food again a few months later. I had a problem with cheese earlier this week. I have problems with chicken, but I can eat other fowl. I have a problem with some seafood, but not all. I forget which ones until I have a problem, again. I know it's an uncommon seafood since it happens very rarely. Mostly, I'm fine if I keep my portion small.

Fancy, are you sure you're ok with milk products? I used to be ok with them & now ANYTHING with milk in it sends me running to the bathroom. I mean even minute traces of milk products. My mom can have fat free milk, but can't have ice cream. Maybe it's the fat in the milk? Have you tried going milk free? You need to find something that can give your gut a break for a little bit. It's extremely difficult finding something when it seems your body hates you, but once you find it, it's like a weight has been lifted & you can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Good luck!

I guess we are having a bad day.
I ate breakfast and had to run to the bathroom.
I didn't eat lunch because of this problem but then my stomach growled all afternoon.
I ate dinner and I was right back there.
I don't usually drink soda but I am drinking some coke. I know it is bad for me but it is the only thing that will settle my stomach after I've tried other things. Go figure.
I hope you all feel better in the morning. Talk with you then.

My doctor doesn't ignore the problem, she just cannot figure out what to do either. Either she or the oncologist sent me to a GI doctor, but he could not find anything wrong to cause the problem. No sign of celiac, gastric ulcers of any kind, inflammation or any of those things. So they just say to track what I eat. If I got rid of everything that ever causes a problem all I would be able to have is bread and milk. But with diabetes I cannot have much bread, so then I am down to milk and water. I am not too good with the water, especially when it just goes right on through. I have to do better with it, though, or I will have other problems, too, and I don't want anymore.

I did pretty well after drinking the Throat Coat tea, but I've tried the slippery elm that is in that and it isn't helping now. It seems like you find something that will help for a couple weeks and then everything blows up again. I guess it wouldn't be quite so bad if I hadn't had the radiation therapy, but now I have to be right next to the bathroom. Thus I cannot even go back to work so I cannot pay my bills. I hate this.

I'm so sorry that you have been sick.
It really stinks having this disease but no matter what we try to tell our Drs., it's like they don't even listen!
We sure wouldn't make this up. People that don't know what it is make rude comments and they shouldn't say anything until they know what it is.
Being sick for all of this time isn't good. Are you drinking a lot of fluids?
As for the foods I really don't know what you should eat.
Have you called your Dr.? He might be able to give you something to help.

I am totally frustrated. It doesn't matter what I do I am having problems. It has been a week and a half since I ate the Chinese food with all the veggies and I am getting sick every day. Thank goodness I didn't go out today, though I was supposed to. I ate a small amount of 93% lean ground beef (maybe 2-2 1/2 ounces), with part of a tomato and some low fat Mozzarella cheese. Later, because it was so cold, I made some hot cocoa with half sugar/half stevia for the sweetener. I wasn't halfway through that when I got sick. I have not had any other veggies except some asparagus in an egg a couple days ago for breakfast. What am I doing wrong? Milk has never been a trigger. In fact, milk and rolls have always been what makes me feel better, but since I now have diabetes I can't have the rolls like I used to. I just don't know what to do anymore. The tests have shown nothing to be wrong, yet this just continues to happen.

Thanks Donna - It's scary. I went to the store recently and found several items I used to buy contained those poisons. That list goes everywhere now. We wonder why cancers, joint, stomach, and other diseases are on the rise. Here we are looking for cures and medications when we should be eliminating these poisons!!
I for one am doing all I can to not eat foods that knowingly contain them.

I've been checking labels for things like the BHT for a long time. Almost all of the cereals have it in them except maybe the really expensive ones. What I found funny was that Honey-nut Cheerios didn't have it, but the other Cheerios did. Of course, I can't eat the Cheerios.

The blog on the Best of Sparkpeople was interesting on the fiber that is added to things. I am going to have to be checking on that in things now, too, since so many things trigger the "D".

Funny thing I have found is things like bread without the preservatives lasts longer than bread with them.

Thanks for the post. i will have to go back and read your blog.

I wrote a blog yesterday on poisons in our food that have been banned in other countries. Please read it, don't feel you need to respond. I want the information out there. We are getting sicker and sicker and I think these are some of the reasons. And if not that, they are certainly adding to them. There are more people today with issues than ever!

I found 4 boxes of cereal in my pantry with BHT and candy with the coloring. I went grocery shopping and can't tell you how many items I normally would have purchased had those poisons!!!

We need to be more aware! I carry this list with me, now that I know it is up to me to no longer purchase those items and to ask questions. Matter of fact I asked the meat manager about their turkey, fortunately the turkey didn't contain the arsenic but they couldn't call it organic because of what the birds ate. He was so interested in my list he was getting a copy for himself. I told him how many items in their store had those poisons, he seemed very interested.

I can't have any dairy. Even lactose free items bother me. Anything with too much fat (good and bad) causes me issues. Coffee can typically set me off as well. I have no problem with fiber as I've had to give up red meat (I eat fish & fowl only), so I eat a lot of beans and vegetarian foods...only so many ways one can disguise a chicken breast. Eating out with me is a pain. I have to ask if there is milk in everything & if you say you're intolerant, they pretty much don't care in many restaurants, so we start off telling the wait staff that I'm highly allergic to red meat and dairy & ask what they suggest. If they seem laxidazical, I'll ask for the manager. Nothing like hidden butter on vegetables to make me RUN to the bathroom during dinner!

Best advice I was given was to keep a food diary to see what your individual triggers are because they can be different for everyone.

Donna don't feel like you are saying something wrong. When I say something I usually say "what works for me" or "be sure to check with your doctor".
...not unless I'm saying something I shouldn't!!!

I know that I can't have coffee with caffeine. I am also careful with chocolate but sometimes I can get away with a small piece. I always drink diet, caffeine free soda when I let myself have it and I drink decaffeinated teas. When I keep these things to a minimum I can usually eat a lot of veggies with no problem as long as I take my digestive advantage IBS pill.

For me it's different all of the time.
One day I can have milk and then the next time I end up with D.
If I eat "gassy foods" I usually end up in the bathroom.

Carbs can add to the problem as they can make you feel bloated.

I have a hard time writing on here, as I don't want to say anything wrong.

We do have a great team, so they can tell you more.

I think it depends on the person. I have often read to have more fiber, but if I eat something with much fiber I will have problems. Like I ate Chinese on Friday after having no problems for weeks. What I had had a lot of vegetables. I had big problems on the way home. I don't think it was the Chinese spices, because I can eat the General Tsao chicken from Walmart (no veggies) and I will not have a problem. I ate part of the leftovers on Saturday and got hit again.

Then, all the books on IBS say not to have any bread or milk. That is what always would help my guts. I would get pan rolls and milk and have that when I was bothered with D and I would soon be doing a lot better. Other people could not eat the bread or milk and would not have problems with the vegetables.

I have problems with everything now because I have diabetes. With that they say to eat more vegetables and, of course, don't eat that bread. Also, I have problems with the exercise with IBS because when I go for a walk or anything I will be hit with problems.

What foods tend to help when you have IBS? And what foods should you avoid with IBS?
