Re: I have more gas now than I ever had in my life.

I don't know if this helps you any, but I have the same problem . But I can eat anything at all and if I don't get to the bathroom within five minutes I will have a big mess to clean up. My body will let loose with an explosive pressure like a gun going off moving my bowles. The doctors all tell me this is normal after having gallbladder surgry. But my surgry was in Jan of 1974! Not 2007 So what is causing the problem now! Nettie1257

Re: I have more gas now than I ever had in my life.

I don't know if it could be my meds or not I'm a type two diabetic on pills and insulin plus I take meds for depression and nerves. All I know is if I eat like they want me to. I will stay in the bathroom the rest of my life.

Re: I have more gas now than I ever had in my life.

If you eat pop tarts for breakfast, a sandwich for lunch, and pizza sometimes for dinner, you are eating TONS of wheat. (Plus, it is probably hidden in lots of other products you wouldn't think of that would have wheat, like mushroom soup or soy sauce).

At least one study has found an association between people with IBS and an intolerance for gluten/wheat. Gluten intolerance can develop at any age.

I have similar problems, and am experimenting with eliminating wheat from my diet. It's only been about 2 days, but I think I'm starting to notice a difference. (The diet is a pain, because I love bread, pasta, etc., but if it will give me relief, I think I will stick with it).

If it isn't the wheat, odds are it's the dairy....

Unhappy Re: I have more gas now than I ever had in my life.

I love yoghurt but it also gives me lots of gas, therefore I eat it only at night when I'm home by myself! Any kind of dairy products, especially cheese, which I love, gets me going. Fortunately I live by myself and can just let go, but if I'm with company, I sometimes go through agony with my bloated stomach.

Re: I have more gas now than I ever had in my life.

Laura are you perhaps just lactose intolerant?
