I recently discovered my IBS problems were actually allergy/intolerance to egg, but now I'm afraid of common allergens (nuts, fish). Is this illogical?

I recently discovered my IBS problems were actually allergy/intolerance to egg, but now I'm afraid of common allergens (nuts, fish). Is this illogical?

Intolerance: I believe that you are intolerant of eggs with respect to your IBS and since this is not a true allergy there should be no cross reaction to other foods. Any intolerance of other food substances are indeed possible but would not be a true cross sensitivity. ...Read more

Eat more: It is a simple math question, eat more calories, than you burn, and you will gain weight.
You need to check your metabolism and make sure you have a normal one.
If you have abnormal metabolism, like thyroid problem, or diabetes, or you have problem absorbing, and benefiting from your food, then that has to be taking care off.
See a doctor. ...Read more

I have watery poop burps that taste like rotten eggs and my guts are extra bubblely. I normally am constipated. I have ibs?

Need more info.: If these symptoms have only been present a couple of days, this could be food poisoning or a viral gastroenteritis, regardless of your IBS. If this has been going longer, however, then there may be an underlying process such as IBS, inflammatory bowel disease, other infection or even a gallbladder issue. If this has been going on for more than five days, go visit your doctor. ...Read more

24 year old male, IBS-D, suffering from Diarrhea after eating pizza, meat, some types of cheeze, egg omelette, spicy food, hard liquor, list keeps inc?

IBS: Obviously the key is to avoid foods that trigger your IBS, but if diarrhea is occurring after more and more foods, you could ask your physician or gastroenterologist to prescribe an antispasmodic medication like bentyl (dicyclomine) 1/2 hour before eating the meal as this often prepares the intestinal tract and avoids cramping and diarrhea. For stubborn episodes the dose can be repeated in 6 hours. ...Read more

Doc said i have ibs.29yr male. Lower stomach grumbles after food. Have lost muscle. Milk egg wheat cause prob. Which probiotic tab and protein shld I take?

Probiotics can be: Helpful but it's best to get a food sensitivity lab test. Great Plains Lab in Kansas has a good one. Conventional tests are more yes/no, but not as good for level of sensitivity. Wheat and dairy are often the offending foods. Get a probiotic w/a variety of strains in it rather than trying to find the strongest number. Yogurt is a drop in the ocean. Peace and good health. ...Read more
