Effect of Dairy Products on IBS

Dairy contains lactose which many people can not digest. A lot of IBS sufferers find that dairy especially milk and cheese is a problem for them.

Yoghurt and IBS

Yoghurt and IBS

Today I’m adding yoghurt – cows milk yoghurt and a bio one. Apparently the bacteria break down lactose in the milk and so is the best to test. Also it’s very good for you! Day 3 I’ve had no problems with the bio yoghurt which is really good as the bacteria in it is very […]

Cheese and IBS

Cheese and IBS

Day 1 Well today I added cheese – just a bit of melted cheese on a jacket potato (but I don’t eat the skin of the jacket). I was OK but have had a bit of gas this evening and the beginnings of a slight IBS pain on the lower RHS. I shall have some […]

Cows milk and IBS

Cows milk and IBS

Day 1 I am really looking forward to today and adding cows milk. I’m feeling positive about this because butter is fine and who knows maybe cows milk will be as well! I had whole cows milk in my tea (although I actually prefer soya milk in the tea now – cows milk removed the […]

Butter and IBS

Butter and IBS

I have to add butter, yogurt, milk and cheese all separately because some people can tolerate specific dairy products. It’s all to do with the processes and how much the milk is fermented. Some products won’t have as much lactose as others so if you have a problem with lactose you might find bio yogurt […]

Soya Milk and IBS

Soya Milk and IBS

Well it took a few days for my stomach to calm down. Decided I wouldn’t bore you with each days details! Organic chicken is so expensive I would really like to try adding non organic but it feels such a waste – its not as if I would be enjoying another food type! The next […]
