Oh gosh. Wish I had some specific answers for you. Have you looked @ The South Beach Diet? That may help a little with meal ideas.

The only thing for the gall stones is watching them and lowering fat. I can do the diet with the apple juice/cider and vinegar and other things that are in that natural diet. I'm nervous of that because of the higher carbs, but maybe I will go ahead and try it. Then I will try to get back on the lower carb.

I do not have any money for specialists. Don't even have enough to go to my PCP. So I am pretty much trying to figure things out on my own. The specialists don't seem to care at all anyway. I have been to two dietitians there, one at the Diabetes Expo, 2 GI doctors. It just doesn't help at all. The only doctor that cares at all is the PCP.

My first question would be what's being done about your gall stones? Seems to me if they're causing you pain (and that pain can be extreme!) that would be the first issue I'd address w/the Dr.

Do you have a kidney specialist? That would be also a #1 priority if it were me. A kidney specialist should be able to offer you counsel on what to eat (or not). That would at least give you some idea of where to go with food for that problem.

The IBS actually does require balance in the fiber intake and obviously, kidney function problems do require a low protein diet.

The IBS and kidney function are indeed complex. Wishing you luck.

I am trying to get low carb again (I go in spurts, unfortunately). Problem is I have problems with gall stones, which are caused by higher fat, IBS that has a problem with fiber and I can hardly eat many vegetables (cannot eat cruciferous or beans), and now I am having some problems with kidney function so that makes protein bad. What suggestions can I get? Dietitians at the hospital just tell me to eat carbs and that raises my blood sugar, so that is out. I have two diet lists from the doctor, but they conflict with each other (one was before gall stones and lower kidney function, but is basically following Grain Brain, the other is for the gall stones and higher carb).

I know there are several on the low carb, high fat diets. Would having the carbs lowered make the fat okay so it doesn't affect the gall bladder? It would also be higher protein, I think, and I wonder about that.
