anyone else have IBS? how do you deal with it? I'm thinking of trying the FODMAP diet

>> No.16249685

What helped me was eating less and taking a probiotic everyday. Now I rarely have issues and pretty much eat whatever I want (just smaller portions and not until I feel stuffed). I also lost about 30 pounds and rarely get heartburn anymore either.

Then I stopped shitting wet sharts 5 times a day.

Fodmap for 2 weeks before you feel ANY difference. Then by the end you feel normal and fixed. It will change your life and isn't hard. Afterwards you can experiment with adding fodmap foods back in. For instance, I can have garlic again but not onions or spices containing onion powder

>> No.16251558

He is correct but didn't mention it's all about diet and nothing else. Even specialists are clueless on this issue it's ridiculous and they label you and don't help
Fodmap diet is the best area to start as it eliminates all possible factors that lead to ibs. Then add back foods to see what it is specifically. This will very likely fix a bunch of other problems you didn't even know you had like aches and pains and night sweats

>> No.16251580

This. I am fine with garlic but onions fuck my shit up. Sucks even more cuz I’m indian and that’s the base of every curry — a metric tonne of onions

>I miss caramelized onions and stuff.
Yeah lol I never really considered how integral onions were to any good cuisine until I actively cut them out, it really blows.
Celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder where your body starts shidding and farding (literally and figuratively) whenever the body tries to process gluten right? See the interesting thing is I wonder how much of a relationship fructans themselves have with celiac disease.
Like its pretty crazy how all the fructan-low diets are similar to celiac diets. There has to be some fundamental relationship between fructans and celiac disease /gluten. Anyways any time people say they have IBS symptoms I tell them to look at FODMAPs and specifically focus on the fructan part of FODMAPs.

>gluten free pasta and bread?
Gluten free pastas are based imo, like brown rice pasta. I'm assuming you use gluten free pasta and bread regularly? I honestly don't go for gluten-free synthesized foods, more so just go for straight up rice or something.

>Also HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP the killer even a drop is awful
Shit, you think your body has a high sensitivity to HFCS? I mean i totally get that, its literally corn right? Which would trigger all those gluten/fructan sensitivities? Do you notice you start shidding and farding upon consuming that HFCS garbage which is laced inside almost every fucking food found on grocery shelves on Earth at this point

I think it's the FRUCTOSE part regular corn syrup is totally fine luckily
Also have a feeling celiac is strongly connected to these things.. diet in general could change people's lives and fix so many of the problems they take meds to hide imo
You'll get to a point where you can make anything you'd usually eat even better than before honestly. But I also started making simple meals
Good luck friend I really think this will change your life for the better and make things normal in the stomach finally as it did for me. It's just a matter of sticking to it even if you see no change at all within the first 13 days

Ok let me restate that almost no pro biotics work besides Bacillus coagulans LBSC. The real key is pre biotics. controlling and selecting the correct pre biotics is essential in controlling your gut microbiota.

I saw coagulans mentioned on r/IBS. That and Florastor (Saccharomyces boulardii) caught my eye, so I will probably give them a try at separate times. I'm only hesitant cus the probiotics on reddit had a couple big shill accounts responsible for a lot of the sidebar information. specifically this one account called maximiliankohler. he shills dozens of probiotics, specifically Jarrow Brand Florator.

anyway, I'm pretty sure I have IBS-D and Florastor is said to help with diarrhea. these are my conditions

Jarrow is a somewhat reputable company or was as far back as I can remember. The Schiff Digestive Advantage Daily Probiotic, Bacillus coagulans has a study how it helped with AIDS wasting and the diarrhea involved. You have nothing to lose, I believe the other anons on here who say probiotics helped. Just do it, don't overthink it anon, I know how frustrating the IBS symptoms are, I've been there. Nowadays I just consume 2g of fish oil and the baccillus coagulan probiotic and eat yogurt several times a week and I'm fine, haven't had an attack in a long long time.

ayyyy it's me, IBD anon. I am currently in the post reintroduction phase of low FODMAP where I just eat stuff that doesn't trigger me. I paid for the Monash app and am happy to post screenshots of any foods you want. The heavy elimination phase sucked pretty bad but now that I know my tolerance level for my trigger foods I pretty much just eat whatever, and have accepted a certain level of bloating as OK. If you don't find symptom relief within 6 weeks of being on strict elimination phase, it's unlikely that your guts will be helped with diet only and you should check in with a doctor.

imagine the smell

>> No.16253784

for the very first week during the strict elimination phase i pretty much just cried and ate meat, rice, shredded lettuce, eggs, tuna, mayo, mustard, shredded lettuce, greek yogurt, peanut butter, cocoa powder, protein powder, chia seeds, and rice noodles. i checked everything with the monash app pretty religiously if i was eating something i wasn't 100% sure of, and started reintroductions about 3 weeks in since my main symptoms were bloating and exploding ass.
mannitol, fructans, and raw veggies in general trigger my IBD pretty badly. vegetable fructans trigger me more than wheat fructans so i can indulge in occasional fast food as long as i don't over-do it or stack too much fructan into a short period of time (6 hours or so).

i've found that as i've been avoiding things i can't eat and my guts heal up more, i have become less sensitive to some trigger foods. i've been pretty solidly low FODMAP for about a year (not elimination phase) and my tolerance level for fructans has definitely increased as long as i have other foods with it. too much raw vegetable at once is still a hard no for me, but "too much" has gone from 1 level cup of baby carrots to 2 overflowing cups. i can have a "high" level serving of raw onion (enough to sprinkle on a plate of tacos in pico de gallo / 75g) but garlic is still a big no for me. mannitol unfortunately hasn't improved, and cauliflower and celery still fuck me up pretty badly.

if your main symptoms are diarrhea and bloating, try to plan for 2 weeks of strict low FODMAP and make sure to have some fun treats in the house that you know will be compliant to keep yourself on track. protein fluff, jello, a couple of nice quality beers, smoothie stuff, nice quality steaks, whatever foods you normally reserve as a treat. this is a great time to indulge in those (as long as they're compliant and you don't overdo it on sugar) without feeling too badly, since you're already cutting off huge swathes of other foods.

>> No.16253803

i really recommend downloading the Monash app if you want to follow a low FODMAP diet. you can give your info to google opinion rewards for a few pennies every now and again and you'll make the money back pretty quickly. it's been invaluable as a tool for quickly checking stuff at the store when i'm unsure, and has saved me a lot of money and prevented a lot of belly aches.

this poster is correct that you can replace garlic with hing. you can also steep garlic in olive oil to make a nice garlic oil for salad dressings and stuff like that. since FODMAPs are water soluble, the fructans won't leech out into the oil. this does mean that if you like to make soup at home, you'll need to check your typical soup veggies to ensure you aren't poisoning yourself on accident as you can't just not eat the celery/garlic/etc since the FODMAPs will go into your soup water with all the yummy vegetable flavor.

It's a lot of trial/error. I think something like 70% of people with IBS actually have SIBO, and as faggy as reddit is the SIBO subreddit is pretty helpful. I did a breath test to diagnose myself, as well as a GI-MAP stool test. I've got a lot of bacterial imbalance and some H-Pylori in my intestines, which I suspect was caused by food poisoning a few years ago. My plan now is to eliminate the H-Pylori. I've tried several herbal remedies for the SIBO, but none have worked so far. It's just a matter of trying a lot of different ones, since everyone's body is different. Worst case scenario you could do the elemental diet for 2-3 weeks, but that has its own issues.

the anon is generally correct, IBS is a sweeping term for "we don't know what's wrong but it's clearly something and e have to charge your insurance for it"
the vast majority of peoples' guts don't just start reacting to things for no reason. either there's physical damage, an actual treatable illness, or a bacterial imbalance. an IBS/IBD diagnosis is a starting diagnosis to get the ball rolling on investigating that specific patient's issues. the diagnostic criteria is a loose collection of symptoms that could be caused by any number of other diseases:
A patient might have IBS if they had recurrent abdominal pain on average at least one day/week in the last three months, associated with two or more of the following criteria:
related to defecation
associated with a change in frequency of stool
associated with a change in form (appearance) of stool
*Criteria fulfilled for the last three months with symptom onset at least six months prior to diagnosis

you don't have to be a doctor to see that it's very clearly a generic term and that the actual issue is going to vary greatly from person to person.
