my name is Chrissy, I have not been officialy diagnosed but my local pharmasist while doing a general health check for my medication suggested I may have a wheat intolerance(I was suffering a lot of IBS symptoms) and suggested I go on a wheat free diet for a while, this seems to be working, but I also discovered I may also be intolerant to lactose.
I am doing really well made a few mistakes because of not reading labels correctly, but am doing ok.It is lovely to wake up and not have my stomach churning and rushing to the toilet.However with this new calmness comes this obsession that i am not having my bowels open enough.I have no discomfort and I go maybe 3 times a week(a pattern I have had all my life) I think because I have suffered so much diahrrea in the last few years, i am now afraid of constipation.Some reassurance please.
a plus of this diet is weight loss, I have been trying to lose weight for years but only seemed to put it on.
