Hi I just wanted to ask some questions about IBS d. I was recently diagnosed with IBS d. I wanted to get a feedback about how people with IBS d cope at work. Also my doctor has asked me to follow the low FODMAP diet and exercise which I am doing. Besides that he told me to take a number of blood tests and stool and urine tests. After seeing them he has now asked me to do a urine culture and a sonography of the abdomen. He had prescribed me enzispor to improve my gut bacteria but has now asked me to stop taking the same. He has only prescribed me with a vitamin tablet. Can you suggest what questions should I ask him. Also I want to know in case I have a flare up in future what medications I should ask my doctor to prescribe me as a precaution.
I also feel as if whatever I eat I am going to have a upset stomach even though I am following the FODMAP diet as required. Does anyone else feel the same. What to do in that case. Does fasting help in IBS d. I know these are a lot of questions. But I just can’t seem to get them out of my mind. I hope to get some good feedback here. Please.
