Thanks to all the info given by you lovely people on this website and, desperate to try anything to help my IBS-D, I started the low FODMAP diet 5 months ago and have found that it solves all my problems. Sheer joy and magic! I can now even eat small amounts of high FODMAP foods on a fairly frequent basis.
However, I have one relative and one friend who both have IBS-C and neither of them have had any success with this diet, in fact, they both seem to think it makes their condition worse. Has anyone else found this, and could it be because the diet is low -fibre?
