Gluten Free is NOT IBS safe

Don’t get me wrong, not all Gluten free products do I consider bad for IBS but you really need to watch yourself. Especially if you have an allergy or intolerance to wheat and soy (and other things).

Please note, I’m just a Computer nerd. I do not have any teaching in nutrition or health. I’m only going by my reaction and experience. If you have suspicions of any issues you need to be sure you get checked out by a doctor for anything else first.

As most of you already know, I’m on a Low-Fodmap diet. It’s a diet made to help people with stomach problems or IBS. I have suffered with severe stomach problems since the day I can remember. I have even had to undergo major surgery that had me feeling great for 9 months, but then the symptoms came back.

After dealing with depression because of it I decided to start taking matters into my own hand. I have been researching and testing and trying all new things when it comes to health, food, and exercise. I can tell you one thing, it has not been easy. I love food and a lot of the foods I love are not something I can tolerate anymore.

However, I have had some success. I have actually had good days that have lasted longer than 2-3 days but up to weeks! When I fail, it is hard, and the pain is severe. This will take time but over the past few months I feel like I have really started to learn a lot more about my body and foods.
