Good Morning Scotland123,
You're right--there is no direct cure and really no test to confirm--ususally, the Drs. rule out everything else it could be and then if nothing shows up--they say IBS.
As far as foods--the fresher, the better--meat is really hard to digest--I eat alot of fish, chicken, and turkey. They seem to be easier to digest. But I do have beef or pork every once in awhile. Because my husband is a meat and potato man. Beef and pork are harder to digest. I have a problem staying away from Cola's but am trying to cut back. White flour and sugar are not good for the colon.
When I eat healthy, I do feel better and yes, I'm able to do normal things and I have alot of fun. I just pray that you get better because you're too young and you need to be enjoying life without the colon problems.
I am trying something else--Probiotic--It's the good bacteria that is in our colon but when you take antibiotics (it kills the bad bacteria but also the good)---The Probiotic is a way to get those good bacteria back into your colon so that it has a better chance of working right. Even if you've not had to take any antibiotics--the Probiotic would be a good thing to try. It comes in a capsule and I just empty one-half of a capsule onto the food that I'm eating--I've learned with my colon to introduce new products slowly. I pray that this helps a little. And I pray that you have a good day today.
precious49 God Bless You and Yours Today and EveryDay
ps. if you do try the Probiotic--just read the directions carefully--if you get too much of it there could be a problem with gas or diarrehea
