Is wheat gluten and fiber safe to eat if you suffer from irritable bowel syndrome?

It depends. It depends on whether or not you can eat gluten containing foods. If you can, it is likely ok. But if you have a problem, then avoid those foods. You might need to avoid lactose foods, like milk. Avoiding stress and an overall high fiber, bland diet would help a great deal if not already done. A visit to your doctor to get tested, and work out therapy can help.
