Re: Worth Reading for IBS'ers

I found that my IBS was actually fructose intolerance (this is an inability to digest frustose sugar... similar to lactose intolerance). After 10 years of "IBS" I am now completely free of symtoms.
This is a good site to start with (although some of the foods on the diet list are not accurate), but do a google search on "fructose intolerance IBS" and you'll find a lot more info.
Oh, PS - this is primarily for people with diarhea as their main symptom rather than constipation.
