Our expert says:
If you suffer from IBS and find that you cannot eat high-fibre foods (as is generally recommended to improve bowel regularity) then I would urge you to consult a clinical 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). The dietitian will have to assist you with a low-fibre diet or one that contains only soluble fibre (if you are reacting to insoluble fibre). You need expert assistance to achieve a balance between the amount of fibre in your diet and your IBS.
