Our expert says:
Try to add probiotics three times a day or eat yogurt with live culture. Avoid very coarse fibre foods, go for soluble fibre (apple without peel for instance), try a heat pack on your tummy when it is very painful. Some people are also sensitive to wheat and lactose (in milk) so see if you cut down on these if it is better - you can eat rice, potatoes, mealie meal products, sweet potato instead. Try soya milk, cheese you can eat as it contains more casein than lactose. The Yogurt - although it contains lactose the cultures are good for you - you will have to decide whether it is good or bad for you after trying it - it is cheaper than buying probiotics.
