Thank you Patti for your feed back. I see the doctor today for blood work and discussion regarding this eating test. I was told by my GD with Celiac disease she is learning about portion sizes and combinations of low fodmap foods. It is helping quite a bit even now. I wish I could find a real active group somewhere that offers ongoing tip,recipes and support. Have a great day Patti, thanks again, Susan

I do not have a diagnosis of IBS so I haven't worked with an RD on doing a true elimination diet.

However, being someone with occasional food sensitivities resulting in unpleasant intestinal symptoms, I did get info about different foods fitting into categories based on their FODMAP components. It was very enlightening to be able to link some foods...and learn to change the amounts and combinations that I eat of them. That alone has helped resolve my occasional diahrrea and bloating, and "explained" some things for me!!

I would certainly encourage you to follow up with this...especially with your diagnosis. All the best,
patti

The FODMAP diet isn't recommended for long term, however there are times when it is definitely recommended on a short-term basis. Below are two links to very reputable sources:

In reading your other responses, it sounds like you are dealing with some frustrating heath issues. Because of this, I would actually recommend working with a Registered Dietitian (RD) who can help you develop an eating plan that won't cause additional harm. And honestly, your gastroenterologist should have referred you to an RD; technically, the FODMAP diet should be administered by an RD, who is basically a food doctor. Medical doctors often know very little about nutrition.

Has anyone tried to control IBS with the low FODMAP journey after positive testing?
