what Are the Worst foods for ibs?

A: Many foods that trigger irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) are referred to as trigger foods. These include most red meats, dairy products, and fried foods. Coffee and other caffeinated beverages should also be avoided. For many people, one of the worst trigger foods for IBS is anything from the red meat family. This includes steaks, ground beef, and pork products. Scientists believe it is the high animal protein content in these foods that tends to cause an IBS flareup. While it may be hard for many people to eliminate red meat from their diets completely, the first step should be to start cutting...


what foods should i avoid with ibs?

A: dairey products can irratate ibs. thats all i know for that one have you ever thought you might have an intolerence?

what foods should you have more of when you have Irtritable bowel and what foods should you avoid?

A: I have IBS and have to be very carefull what I eat. Spicy foods or sometimes even certain other foods that don''t make any sense trigger an attack. Also about 6 months ago I became completelu unable to eat beef. If I eat beef at all I become very sick and have severe pain in what feels like my back but they say is my colon. There is no medication for the pain. The only thing I can do for about three days after consuming beef or beef products is lay in pain and try to sleep through the pain. It gets super bad at times. Keeping a good bulk in your died, such as fresh fruits and vegetables or fiber laxatives. It''s difficult to regulagte and you kind-of have to play...


what foods should a 6 year old with irritable bowl avoid ?

A: ew does he like poop everywhere? I would go back to the GI and scope upper and lower to rule out/in an eos disorder, celiacs, reflux, and run blood and stool samples (should have been done already) for infections. IBS is a blanket diagnosis, and I would never accept that for my kiddos. They have food allergies, and my son has a scope scheduled to look for all of the above disorders. Time for your friend to take her son back to the Dr. No matter the age Irritable bowel can be hard to treat because they are not even sure what triggers it, but they do know for sure that stress can often trigger it for some people. My husband, Mother in law, my Dad, and several friends I know have it. what my...


IBS sufferer

A: Certainly there are some foods that appear to aggrevate IBS sufferers more than others.  Namely, fatty foods, alcohol and caffeine.  However, there does not appear to be a direct correlation with food and triggering IBS. The foods above seem to amplify the natural gut reflex which moves food and waste along.  In IBS this reflex is amplified and seems to be the cause of diarrhea, pain and/or constipation. Stress is a component of every illness.  However, there is no study which suggests that stress is the cause of IBS.  Personally I feel that it is natural to feel stress if you have an illness that is so unpredictable, like IBS. I recommend that you join the...

what is irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and its treatment?

A: Irritable bowel syndrome (also called spastic colon, irritable colon, or nervous stomach) is a condition in which the colon muscle contracts more readily than in people without IBS. A number of factors can trigger IBS including certain foods, medicines, and emotional stress. Symptoms of IBS include abdominal pain and cramps, excess gas, bloating, and a change in bowel habits such as harder, looser, or more urgent stools than normal. Often people with IBS have alternating constipation and diarrhea. Treatment includes avoiding caffeine, increasing fiber in the diet, monitoring which foods trigger IBS (and avoiding these foods), minimizing stress or learning different...

IBS and lactose question

A: Hi Nili - there is a wealth of dietary information that will help you starting here http://www.helpforibs.com/diet/ There"s specific info about dairy and IBS here http://www.helpforibs.com/diet/faq.asp#dairy  You"ll notice that the issue of lactose intolerance is irrelevant.

what is a good home remedy for colitis

A: Colitis is an auto-immune chronic digestive condition involving the inflammation of the colon. Colitis is most often mistaken for IBS or irritable bowel syndrome; however, it is actually classified as an IBD or inflammatory bowel disease. Colitis is a group of conditions which are auto-immune and inflammatory in nature. Colitis can be further divided into four types: Pseudomembranous colitis: is caused due to an allergic reaction to antibiotics administered to a person. In this case, a person may experience an inflamed colon as a side effect of consuming antibiotic drugs. Ischemic colitis: is a condition in which the large intestines get inflamed due to an injury of some kind. This condition is brought about due to a shortage of blood supply to the colon. A person suffering from ischemic...

tracking trigger food

A: For me an IBS attack is usually what some call dumping (repeated bm''s, that can go on for an hour or two, spaced out over 5 to 10 minutes). Or all out diarrhea. I''m usually fine while the offensive food travels thru the stomach, small intestine but when it hits the colon, for me, trigger foods usually have an adverse effect. I just know I''ll be spending a lot of time in the bathroom. Afterwards, I''ve had another mini-clean out and feel depleted. Starving actually. Others here will likely tell you they may feel ill or nauseous, soon after they eat the offensive food. My trouble is post digestive, can be hours after I''ve eaten the food or the next day. Only a few times have I had immediate trouble (mostly from...
