Re: Low FODMAP

Hi Keriza71 It is difficult to say what has caused the relapse without knowing what you have eaten.

Re: I’m so confused with my symptoms

Hi Melissa You mention that you have completed the low FODMAP diet but perhaps not for long enough but not how long you have done it for.

Please don't be tempted to do this without help, as it is really important your daughter is given the correct advice - not having the correct diet can affect children's growth. A lactose-free diet will help and lactose...

Re: bowel spasms

You are probably not having much fibre in your diet currently and most people would be able to manage the choices that are normally allowed on the restriction phase. I do wonder if this might help? You don't state however what your b...

Re: IBS Question

Hi Mary I am pleased that you have had some resolution for your symptoms with Aloe Vera but I'm afraid that it should not be advised on a regular basis, as a treatment for everyone with IBS.

Re: IBS constipation

Hi Kathleen It is a little difficult to give information without appearing to go over what you may have tried previously, as you have not given much detail in your question and you have had symptoms for a considerable time, unfortunately. I apologise if I appear to be going over old ground. You say ...
