Hi Everybody,

I'm looking for Type B's who have been diagnosed with IBS and how the Type B diet helped or did not help.  My roommate was just diagnosed and we're trying to find a way around her having to take pills all the time.  She eats fairly close to the diet already, although she isn't really following it anymore since she has trouble keeping weight on.  They told her to limit her green vegetables and some other foods, and to avoid stress, but that was about it.

Thanks!

I'm sure some B's will chime in soon but off the top of my head, she needs to determine secretor status.  At first you say she's eat's like a B, but then you say she's not really following it.

When someone is dealing with a health issue that is taking a long time to solve, determining secretor status us key.  Once she knows her secretor status, (and if she gets back on a program of following the diet for her specific type) she will see results much quicker.  It's the one thing above all else that will help her.

From the ResultsBase.  I typed in Irritable Bowel, and got 17 hits, and one B reporting.

IBS was one of my major health issues prior to BTD, i felt sick/nauseous a lot of the time, no real appetite not fun.. following the B diet has turned that around for me. I feel it was like my lifesaver, as i had got to the point where i felt ill whatever i ate.. i was diagnosed in abt 1994 and struggled until i found BTD in 2003.

Even now I do not eat 100% on the diet, i   just do the best i  can and now i really notice if my stomach is bad, and even then i can usually get over the worst much quicker.

One thing i have found helpful when my stomach does get bad now, I grate some fresh ginger and add that to my peppermint tea, seems to help me recover quicker.

Encourage your roommate to give BTD a proper go - she doesn't have to change everything all at once, and I am sure she will start to feel better. as  a nonnie, i find i need lots of the right protein to make me feel full.

What is she eating at the moment? if she is eating chicken, she can easily switch to turkey eg

I am sure once she is eating foods that her body can use, she will find weight staying on (my problem is the opposite!) and will not have to take pills which may even have ingredients in them she cannot tolerate.

Doctors seem to diagnose everything as stress related, well it's very stressful to have a condition that affects your everyday life!

Good luck to her and yourself.
