To control IBS diarrhoea, and maintain normal stools, I have finally found an answer that works for me.
People with constipation-predominant IBS, you should look into magnesium which can cause diarrhoea, therefore reducing your symptoms.
My focus is on diarrhoea-predominant IBS, because that has been my problem since a long-term multi drug resistant parasite infection (now cured) has left me with post infectious IBS.
Combined with the low FODMAP diet, I supplement with calcium tablets (600 mg of Calcium Carbonate), twice daily - once with breakfast and once with dinner.
The results are great. Believe me, I have tried everything from probiotics to boswellia to histidine and zinc, to manage the diarrhoea, to no avail.
There are some studies to support to use of calcium to aid in reducing diarrhoea, and many personal reports. It works for me!
If you have this problem I hope it works for you too. The added benefit is that it helps prevent osteoporosis.
