I am also on the Low FODMAP diet. I was relapsing until I started working with a nutritionist about two months ago. Before then, I had suffered from chronic, nonstop diarrhea for three months and lost 20 pounds. I am now on my 21 day without diarrhea. I am in the early stages of recovery and slowly trying and introducing new foods. I am cautiously optimistic, and truly believe the diet is what has kept me from relapsing this time. I started the diet on my own and made many mistakes until I met with the nutritionist. My troubles started after taking Clindymycin. It was first thought I had CDiff but the GI doctor eventually diagnosed me with SIBO. Never thought an antibiotic could totally unbalance someone’s gut to this extent. I do believe diet is key to recovery in these cases and I am glad to read someone else is benefitting from it. Gives us all hope.

By the way, I was also diagnosed with GERD ten years ago but have not needed medication since I started to limit sugar, carbs and lactose. It is now believed the acid suppressing medications we take for GERD are another contributor to dysbiosis. I don’t plan to go back to taking acid suppressing meds either. Have not needed them.

What do you eat ?

How did you find nutritionist to work with?
