after 2 years of IBS I found a fix

After 2 years of trying to find out what caused my IBS I may have found a cure. First let me say that I've tried just about everything. For a while the only thing my stomach could take was protein (meat, fish etc) No fruits (probably a fructose intolerance) no raw veggies, definitely no breads. I took pro-biotics. Used soy products instead of dairy. No caffeine of any kind. Food was no fun as you all probably know. Lost 15 pounds, looked great, felt lousy.
I never knew when I'd have to make a sudden run for the bathroom.(Went through the bloody IBS stages last year and controlled that with diet)
Had a colonoscopy. Diagnosed with colitis, but I don't trust that doctor. He misread my chart while talking to me. Later my primary MD got a copy of report and told me what it really said.
Long story short I started taking Beano tablets with EVERY MEAL recently I am still on a modified diet but life has gotten A LOT BETTER.
The enzyme in Beano seems to do the trick. i don't think it will be a miracle if you are deep in the throes of the disease but try it along with diet modification and see what happens. It's been a process of being my own doctor to find out what works for me. P.S. Beano is a non-patented formula which you can find online under different names for less money or in any food/drugstore as Beano. I've tried 2 versions and they all work the same.
Hope this helps. Lord knows there isn't much medical help out there.
