s IBS bojujem uz asi vecnost. bolo obdobie ked som pomaly nic nejedla a predstava, ze mam ist von bola pre mna nocnou morou. citanie prispevkov od ludi, ktori sa potykaju s rovnakym problemom bolo dost odlahcujuce a teda, ze som si nie raz poplakala...i ked som nasla sposob, ako zmiernit priznaky (naozaj vyvazena strava v pravidelnych intervaloch, neprejedanie sa, probiotika atd.), nic nefungovalo dlhodobo a ked som v strese som stratena uplne nech robim cokolvek. dostala som sa vsak k foru, kde odporucali kalcium...dovolim si zdielat tento prispevok a i ked som si nie ista, ci je mozne na slovaci kupit zrovna tu spominanu znacku, urcite to stoji za pokus...pokial nezabudnem zjest polku tabletky s kazdym jedlom (ranajky, obed, vecera-doporucena davka je totiz max.2 tabletky denne)alebo nemam obzieraci den, som v pohode a jedine s cim este musim bojovat je len moja hlava, ktora ma nuti planovat kazdy jeden krok mimo domu (esteze v Au su toalety na kazdom kroku, dokonca s toaletakom, takze sa mozem citit relativne "bezpecne" a v konecnom dosledku byt bez ich pouzitia)...tak tu to mate, vybrala som to podstatne, bo uz tak je to dost dlhe a ak bude potreba a zaujem, kludne to prelozim:
This is what has helped me for more than 7 years (since 1998) with almost daily attacks of urgent DIARRHEA. Calcium is known to be constipating so if you are that IBS type do not take it. Here is the what and how to take the calcium information if you suffer from DIARRHEA Calcium is an OTC supplement we all do not usually get enough of. No Rx needed to purchase this.
A lot of the calcium supplements contain a 2 to 1 ratio of calcium to magnesium. Magnesium is not helpful for us with DIARRHEA only causing more in most cases. So do not purchase this combination. It will only make things worse.
The most success has come for using any formula of calcium supplement that is like Caltrate 600 Plus with Vitamin D and Minerals in the purple and white box.
There are other things to consider. If you take any other meds check the side effects and also check
with the pharmacist to see it taking calcium will interfere with you other medications and how you might take them.
The only side effect is at the beginning of taking the calcium you may have some gas or indigestion but this usually goes away soon after taking a regular dose for a few days as your body adjusts to the added calcium.
Starting with 1/2 tablet doses with each meal will lessen this problem and it may be enough to control
the DIARRHEA attacks without making you constipated. Constipation can be a problem so be careful not to take too much.
I must take 1 tablet with each meal and the DIARRHEA does not come back if I miss taking it I get DIARRHEA.
I started with Caltrate 600 Plus with vitamin d and minerals and it does seem to make a difference
in the ingredients of calcium... This one seems to do the best job for most. You can buy other store
brands of calcium with the same ingredients that work just as well but they need to have the same ingredients.
It is important to use a calcium that is as much alike as the Caltrate brand. Let me list the ingredients:
Vitamin D 200 IU
Calcium 500 or 600 MG (This should be calcium carbonate form)
Magnesium 40 MG
(No more than this amount because magnesium will cause you to have DIARRHEA but because calcium is constipating the magnesium helps to counter act that effect)
Zinc 7.5 MG
Copper 1 MG
Manganese 1.8 MG
Boron 250 MCG.
The dose you take with each meal is not the dose that is helping you at that meal it is the prior ones that have time to works their way through you system to soak up excess bile and water in the intestines.
