This IBS thing has been a wake up call for me, hey, I needed to "eat healthier" anyway!
I'm doing much, much better than say a week ago, when things had escalated to a most miserable point with this thing.
Safe to say, I am now eating healthier, as I now have no choice in the matter. This is something that is not life threatening by any stretch of the imagination and has been a wake up call, things could have been much worse.
Besides the IBS, my blood sugar was a little high 2 weeks or so ago (114 fasting) and this is pre-diabetic is what the dr said so my hand was forced here as well.
I went to Whole Foods yesterday evening and purchased a probiotic pill form. Never would have imagined the selection of this stuff! Different strains, liquids, pills, 5 billion cfu vs 50 million cfu, had to ask for assistance.
Wound up getting a 14 probiotic strain with 35 billion cfu in pill form, a 30 day supply.
Here's to good health! :cheer:
