Our expert says:
The Librax and the probiotic should help a great deal to normalising your bowel movements, so give this treatment a chance to take effect. Because of your insulin resistance some of the foods that are regarded as "bland" will have a high-GI and not be suitable for your condition. I think you should continue eating your standard diet, BUT cut out all spices and condiments, all gas producing foods (the cabbage family, raw onions, garlic), excessive caffeine, carbonated beverages, alcohol if this is applicable, and foods that trigger the diarrhoea. If you are looking for a new dietitian, visit the Association for Dietetics in SA Website at: www.adsa.org.za and click on "Find a Dietitian" to find a dietitian in your area. IBS, which is nowadays believed to have an auto-immune origin, also tends to flare-up when you are under stress. If this should be the case the Librax should help, but you also need to do some relaxing exercises, like deep breathing and/or eliminate what is stressing you (if possible!).
I hope that the Librax and probiotic plus the slightly modified diet will help you to overcome this flare-up.
