This is Dr. David
i am sorry you have been living with IBS.
have you had a colonoscopy performed?
what symptoms do you have with your IBS? do you have more diarrhea or constipation?
have you been placed on IBS medication like hyoscyamine? or dicyclomine? or Donnatal?
what does your diet consist of?
why did you rate bad service?
it sounds like you are getting enough fiber in your diet.
to battle constipation, you can eat prunes regularly or take extra psyllium fiber .
but even if you are having a good diet, if you are still having constipation, you might need stronger treatment
like taking an over the counter stool softener like colace (docusate sodium)
I hope you are not drinking raw milk.
it is very common for the nose to run when you are eating.
this has to do with the nerves from the brain stimulating your salivary glands to produce more saliva when you eat.
and these same nerves can also stimulate your nose to run as well.
it sounds like you are eating a very good idea already
you most likely don't need to get extra vitamins in your diet.
taking extra multivitamins most likely will not help with your IBS symptoms
extra iron in your diet can cause worse constipation.
most of the excess vitamins you take get filtered out into your urine
