Are you sure when you went at 2:15 it was the spinach, not something else? That's so fast! When I've flared, the same thing happens to me unfortunately, things just go right through me. Lately I've been constipated so it's been taking like 4 days to even have a BM, so probably a longer transit time than that.

That's impressive pillpopper!

This disease double-sucks for me. When I am sick foods go straight through me too, but not without extracting all the carbs first. I have type 1 (insulin dependent) diabetes and you'd think that with food going straight through that I'd be able to eat anything I want - but NO. Still have to count every dang carb.

Never had your kind of speed though. Maybe 3 hours is my record.

Following excellent Omega-3 diet as per James Scala's 'The New Eating Right for the Bad Gut' - got me out of a flare.

I think there was a previous posting on this...but yeah, I totally understand the fast transit leafys always do this to me, usually in less than an hour (you can tell when it comes out, especially if you try and avoid it, but just this once, you couldn't resist the temptation...oh I can't tell you how much I'm craving a butter lettuce and spinach salad with vinigrette dressing.) one point during first dx, while doing a barium follow through, I had to drink that disgusting stuff again...cuz the radiologist said it went though too fast for the pictures (less than 15 min)...urg!

PP,, cool, with my small amount of guts i can do as little as 10 minutes with some contrast etc.. all depends on how fast it leaves my stomach.. i have actually slowed down this past year. my system has adapted i think and has gone from very fast, like not even finishing the meal to up to 12 hours for stuff to pass.. depends on the day and the product though.

I totally understand what you mean. The radiologist told me my transit time is 40 minutes. I have had a foot of intestine removed and it has caused dumping syndrome. Food moves through very quickly.

I too have had more than a foot removed from my intestine, but I do not have dumping syndrome as described above. But if I eat a salad or other leafy greens I always see them very quickly. My system does not like them thats for sure.
