dairy products and IBS

My fifteen year old was diagnosed with possible IBS. I'm thinking the daily cereal and skim milk might be the culprit. Her diet consists of fruits and veggies, plenty of water, very little sweets, chicken, fish and red meat. Her symptoms a gurgling sounds and pain in the intestine, lower abdomen bloating, up to now only a few bouts of diarrhea and no constipation. This sounds like the beginning stages to me. What would be a good alternative breakfast, yet still keep the calcium requirements?

Re: dairy products and IBS

I suggest getting a good source of calcium/magnesium supplement and cut down on the dairy products. As you may know dairy products contain no fiber and are really only made to produce calcium for baby cows(big bone animals) not humans. There are alot better sources calcium that are more readily absorbed.
