hiya everyone,
I am having slight trouble, i have left sided UC but also have IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) I seem to get very blocked up on some days but others days will be fine, however i have constant tummy pains and swelling, and varied bowel movements.
I eat a fairly healthy diet, but i am stuck on what i can or cant eat. some people say eat high fibre others say low fibre. Im wanting to change my way of eating to help control my IBS but i dont know where to start!
 
anybody got any advice please?

I have IBS too. I have taken a fiber supplement for as long as I can remember. It really helps keep me regular. Have you considered a probiotic as well?
