I’m a46 year old female sitting in a hotel room with painful symptoms of ibs. I’ve been working with a g.i. Doctor who suggested I look into a low Fodmap diet. I did, and symptoms greatly improved! It’s been tough eliminating foods and introducing them- results will vary and it gets confusing. I recommend using a nutritionist- next on my docket!! However, I’ve lapsed on being conscious of what I eat and am now paying the price with bloating, extreme bms and cramping. Diligence is the key-along with exercise and a healthy way to alleviate stress. I LOVE food and it’s so hard when one is away or on vacation to figure out what eat. I don’t mean to whine…. But I wish there was a quick treatment that was guaranteed to work…
