Cure For Ibs ?

I'm on a mission to stop my stomach from hurting all the time. I'm on the gluten free, food sensitivity, vegan diet and I have added oils with EFA's to my diet for nutrition and to aid with chronic "C". So far, so good. My bowels are moving like clockwork and my stomach is no longer churning. Just left with a little gas related chest pain, but it's really not a big deal at this point.

I've read where You can't cure IBS with diet, but I am beginning to wonder. Anyone else ? Anyone trying oils / with EFA's ?

BTW, all the meds were either too strong or useless. Zelnorm worsened my stomach cramps.

Thanks for your help ... Marcia

Were you tested for Celiac? Many times, celiac has been misdiagnosed as IBS. If a the diet you are following makes you feel better, then you are most likely intolerant of something that you were eating, and that is what was causing your pain. Many of us started gluten-free trying to find a "cure" for our illnesses.

Going gluten-free and dairy-free has eliminated my IBS symptoms. Since IBS is not a disease, there is no cure anyways.

Thanks for your replies. SOooo, does this mean I can stop waiting for the pain to come back ????

I've been on this diet for 6 months now and mostly pain free for about a month, simply because I was in denial about a few foods I didn't want to part with.

Any word on the "C" and using oils to help deal with it ? I'm just using what the bottle labels as the RDA amount or less and I feel fine. Cramped a little in the beginning, but not anymore.

Unfortunately, I wasn't tested for celiac. I saw a GI for 2 years and he did an endo and colonoscopy, but didn't look for celiac. My GP diagnosed me as celiac based on positive diet response in Sept 05.

Thanks again folks ... marcia

Well after getting a good nites sleep, it dawned on me that I was obviously misdiagnosed with IBS. DUH !!!!! That's what ya'll have been trying to tell me, but I couldn't process it. The old brain fog.

Good foods = no cramps, pain, "D", or "C"

Bad foods = cramps, pain, "D" and "C"

Don't ya'll just love explaining things fifty times ..... Thank you .... Marcia

That's ok, Marcia. With some of the doctors that some of us have had, we have learned to patiently explain things over and over. As the fog clears, you will understand!

    • I hope you don't have to wait too long for the results. A false negative is always possible since we have a lot of intestine but it sounds like you have a good doctor who took lots of biopsies.  Since she had a high positive it would be a good idea for her to do the diet strictly for a few months no matter the results. I hope you get some clear answers and that she is feeling better soon.
    • I did not see anyone give ideas about milk-based gravies or sauces yet, but I found a great solution by trial and error because so many recipes I love call for "cream of mushroom" or "cream of chicken" soup. Just melt a little butter with diced onion and put in some rice flour with a bit of milk and heat until bubbly. Add more milk (or chicken/beef stock) a little at a time until you have the amount you need. Salt/pepper as desired. Green bean casserole is still possible! Yay! Crush up some potato chips or those gluten free french fried onions that Aldi sells and it's just like old times before gluten free days:) There's really nothing else to it but if you feel like you need to watch someone do it before you are confident enough to try it on your own, you can see our family's simple little recipe here. Nothing fancy, just some free encouragement...  
    • So my type 1 daughter had her biopsy today and the gi afterwards noticed some redness/inflammation (gastritis?) but also saw the villi.  I guess I was expecting that with her blood test result of her transglutinminase ttg iga of over 100 that she would definitely see some damage.  Her symptoms seem to be ramping up as well.  She took multiple biopsies in several locations and now we wait.  Do you think that there is a chance that with a very positive blood test result she could have a negative biopsy?  My daughter was saying that she would like the positive biopsy to know for sure and to make it easier to stick to being gluten free forever.    This is really hard waiting
    • Avocados are packed with good fats. Aldi and Lidl often have them on offer.  You may be able to tolerate sweet potatos if you're looking for a carb. They're better for you than potatoes, lower glycaemic index and more nutrients. Ask the pharmacy if they can order in the folic acid variant your after or order it online? All the best! Matt
    • The outcome wasn't good, but if the planning had gone on for that long they could've contacted the tavern in advance and either satisfied themselves about their standards or cleared the child to bring in a snack. Instead they've lawyered up and a great many people are going to go through a lot of stress which didn't really need to happen.
