Hi - I always wonder when someone complains of IBS symptoms if they have been tested for CELIAC DISEASE. I don't know why docs are so resistant to testing for Celiac as it is profoundly underdiagnosed in our country. My husband is an MD and was diagnosed with Celiac about 10 years ago. It is always good to rule this disease out which can, at times be silent and at other times be almost identical in symptoms to IBS. (Celiac disease is an allergic reaction to gluten in wheat, rye, barley and oats) Just a thougt from an old nurse!
