"Many patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) in clinical remission continue to have symptoms of pain and diarrhea despite minimal or no ongoing inflammation. These patients may be considered to have an overlap of IBD and irritable bowel syndrome (IBD-IBS). In this month's Journal, a proposal is made that continued symptoms in patients with elevated calprotectin, a marker of inflammation, is related to IBD."
The fecal calprotectin is a stool test for inflammation. Just fyi.
It could be IBS. Especially since you have had it so long and it has not progressed.
How much fiber do you eat?
I did some sort of fecal test a few years ago, must be that that one, maybe I should consider doing that test again.
I do believe in what you said though since I had it for so long and it has not progressed, so HOPFULLY it is IBS still.
As for how much fiber do you eat? For every meal I would eat at least half the amount of meat I eat so 50/50.
Maybe I should try something like metamucil again, it's funny because mostly it's the fibre that I cannot digest. Never had problem with anything but fibre...
