Re: Sounds like it could be IBS!

I'm not familiar with anemia being a symptom of IBS. What other tests have you had done? I only ask because I have IBD and I never test positive for inflamation in my bloodwork. And some of my Crohn's disease cannot even be seen by a colonoscopy, it's in a part of the intestines which can only be seen in a capsule endoscopy. I'm just curious because right now my GI uses my anemia as a way to determine if my Crohn's is active or not. If you can get further tests done you might want to. IBS is only supposed to be diagnosed if everything else is ruled out. But the diet here will be helpful either way. I find the peppermint tea very helpful when I am in a flare.
