IBS—Change from -D to -C
Has anyone else experienced a change from IBS-D to IBS-C? After about two years of the D, I have now changed to the C. I have no explanation for this and of course doctors don’t either. I had learned pretty well how to manage the D stuff with low FODMAP diet but now am having trouble with the constant constipation and experimenting (not very successfully) with the related OTC products suggested by doctors to treat it. Still following the Low Fodmap diet. Anyway my basic question is: Do the same foods and ingredients (eg fructose, polyols, oligosaccarides etc.) that I had been avoiding to prevent diarrhea now cause constipation? Doesn't seem logical— but then I guess nothing much about IBS is logical! I have been tempted to eat a nice big serving of pinto beans with guacamole to see what happens.
