Ola May,

On that "Introduction" thread you asked me what a "low residue" diet was.

Couple of answers:

First, in a general sense, it would be a diet on any foods low in fiber. Second, for me it consists mostly of eggs, meats (fish and poultry mostly), cheeses and other dairy products.

I suffer the symptoms of IBS-D and for me fiber (I tried the Metamucil, Fibercon, etc.) is disaster. My Doc suggested I try "low residue" foods (there actually may be somebody with a "Low Residue Diet" book with recipes and all, but I haven't gone that far), it worked for me (in that the symptoms were clearly minimized), so that and the Caltrate are my current efforts. Now if I can improve on my sleeping patterns, I think I'll do even better.

Anyway, the other thing I wanted to tell you is that there have been plenty of posts on this board about low residue, and if you use that "search" feature (a link at the top with "FAQs" and others in a line), key in the words "low residue" as search criteria, it should pull up the posts for you. Try it.

BJ
