I also have type 2 diabetes (handled by diet) no raw vegies/ no diary products, the Librax has stopped the pain but my sugar count is higher, could the Librax becausing this? The only changes I have made is to stop eatng the above foods?
I've been taking Librax since 1994. I don't have diabetis, and my blood sugar has remained the same. Carbohydrates can be converted to high sugar levels. Librax is the only stomach meds that work for me. You need to talk to your doctor. personally-for IBS they tell you to eat smaller amounts-more often. I do not find that conducive to controlling weight. I find yogurt to be helpful-I've had doctors tell me that dairy products were bad-that's a lie. Every person with IBS is a little bit different. Drinking something icy, while eating food from the oven is a disaster for my stomach. I drink and eat room temp foods. Many doctors were/are taught that IBS is caused by dairy products-I even had an allergy test-because I insisted milk wasn't a problem. I was right.
Food triggers for IBS- raw veges-peels and rinds-icey things-alcohol-caffiene, carbonation-bran,as most bran products aren't bran but wheat shorts that cut horses' stomachs during digestion-spicey foods-grease-sugar, by the way, splenda and some artificial sugars are ground up apple peels which really hurts IBS stomachs. My doctor doesn't understand Librax-I've ran into tvery few that do-You are lucky- Very few seem to. They want me to change back to crap that seemed to make me worse. I was expecting to die, when they tried Librax-I could eat only a small amout of boiled white rice and water-everything else caused severe diarrhea and stomach pains that caused me to sweat-my hair would be soaking wet. My husband carried me into my doctor like that. Then he finally understood. He made notes on my chart-I'm actually scared that a twit will stop writing me scripts for Librax. I know that U take insulin-but do U take anything else that might be a bad mix for blood sugar? In 2011, I had a doctor that told e to stop eating doughnuts-and start eating salad. I panicked-but got rid of her. 4 me, breakfast is a bagel and cream cheese or cream of wheat without milk or sugar, lunch a yogurt or chiken noodle soup, dinner-white rice or pasta- tuna noodle casserole-sometimes a hamburger patty on white bread-SOS on rice-some beef that been pot roasted so it's tender moist and easy to digest and non-greasy-a small amount of rare steak is good-I'll cook up some diced chicken breast with zucchini and pasta. It's better than the ER. I'm sure that you R used to keeping a food diary- do so-It's really important for you.
