  1. Please keep us posted and let me know how the medication works for you. Just a side line - you may find you have a lot of gas with this - but that sure beats the alternative Lots of luck and hoping the big D is alleviated. Hugs,...
  2. I am finally on the road to healing..... I am hoping that those who are undiagnosed are reading this because it may help you find some answers and some relief.... I am sure many undiagnosed diarrhea sufferers do not know that their...
  3. I hope this isn't too weird, but I just wanted to say that I can relate to a lot of your posts on here (the symptoms I'm still struggling with, seemingly endless intolerances). I have little answers, but it's nice to know I ain't the only one. Best of luck in figuring everything out! <3 Also, your avatar is awesome.

    Nocturnal Diarrhea

    I am not eating gluten - been free for 3 months and I do not have dairy either - but I have noticed that if I eat too much starch or sugar - I tend to have problems. I cannot tolerate potatoes, rice, cereals, fruits and vegetables or fructose...
  5. Are any of you plagued with Nocturnal Diarrhea that comes on in the middle of the night? I know for myself - I usually am awoken about 1 to 3 a.m. and have to go to the bathroom either with watery, semi hard or even regular urgency....

    Can We Get A Chat Room?

    I know some of the forums come with chatroom software. Not sure if this one does. When I ran a graphics forum, there was an option to have a chatroom which we sometimes used. The only way a person could get access was by being a member...
  7. I have tried using the Silk Vanilla Almond Milk and as long as I use just a small amount in cereal I am okay. But, yesterday, I made the mistake of having a glass of milk and had diarrhea for the better part of yesterday and some again...

    Can We Get A Chat Room?

    I think this sounds like a wonderful idea. Before hand, you could have an agenda of topics to discuss and then make a date for the chat. What a fun way to meet other members, too
  9. If you are interested in Elaine Gottschall's diet - here is a link to a web site that tells you something about her book including a list of legal and illegal foods. Her diet does require you to give up a lot, though. http://www.breakingtheviciouscycle...

    Rice Sensitivity

    It also could be the amount of rice being consumed. I have recently learned about the Low Fodmap Diet which does allow the consumption of grains during meals but it does say that the rule of thumb is to not have more than a half of cup...
  11. After posting this question, I have been doing some research on SIBO (Small Intestine Bacteria Overgrowth) and came up with three very interesting links I am going to share. If you think you may have SIBO, you should see a doctor who...
  12. If you have SIBO (Small Intestine Bacteria Overgrowth) you may have problems with the Honey Nut Chex and Chocolate Chex. With SIBO you also will have a fructose intolerance and should avoid honey (in the Honey Nut Chex) as well as fructose...
  13. How long did you take this and did it clear up the condition for good?
  14. I have been gluten free now since January - 3 full months - but still have ongoing diarrhea and malabsorbtion symptoms. I have had my endoscopy which visually showed no damage at all as well as a colonoscopy that was clean. I am still...
  15. sounds great - hoping the one near me had it too - I love those mixes!
