      May I ask how much fruits, veggies, grains, and protein you eat? Also overdoing the extra sugar can throw your gut off. I've worked in the food industry and one thing that a lot of ppl don't know is that certain diets like gluten or lactose free tend to have higher amounts of sugar added to adjust for the taste change that going certain qualities free can cause. Natural sugars like those from strawberries are just fine (provided your not allergic to strawberries lol) also fiber is great if your constipated but terrible if you get diarrhea. More bananas and apples help with diarrhe, rice and certain grains are good too, especially if it's toasted or dried.

      So I got diagnosed this past year with ibs and diarrhea. When I have a flair up I follow the BRAT diet. That's bananas, rice, apple sauce, and toast. I've also found past helpful too. A strict diet is important. I don't always follow mine and that's why I get the flair ups. I did Mediterranean diet to be the best for me. It's not fish, poultry, fruits and veggies, trains, legumes and nuts and less fat, red meat, or dairy. She dairy is listed but I'm lactose intolerant too so I use oatmilk for the vitamin D. I haven't tried it yet but I heard yoga helps with digestion too. I hope all this helps

      Apple cider helps and probiotics also

      Keep trying different probiotics, there are ones for specific purposes. Like not brand but the actual strains in the products. I’ve found a lot of relief with using vinegar water before meals. And taking peppermint, milk thistle and saffron. Breathing deep a few times throughout my meal also helps me!

      Quick question what supplements do you take may I ask, I only take vitamins and I've tried probiotics with no real help

      Thank you so much for replying, Is there a certain diet you follow or books you've read to help u find this diet , I'm also lactose and yes I've eliminated so much food but find no relief anything makes me bloat :(

      I am still following a strick diet years later. I have both IBD and IBS

      Following a strict diet has helped me the most along with taking supplements. Eliminating trigger foods is key. Getting a good balance of all your macronutrients can be difficult and frustrating (at least for me) on such a limited diet but its worth it to feel better.
