    Question for folks with IPS:

    Do you have symptoms all day?

    My reason for asking is that I have symptoms that could be IPS, but I don’t get them after every meal. It all started about 18 years ago, when I would feel a bit iffy (faint, exercise intolerant, OI) after breakfast. Then it gradually extended until I felt iffy for longer and longer into the day, with a slump after b’fast and lunch, but not after dinner.

    Hello! I don’t have symptoms all day. I keep it under strict control by eating protein with a tiny bit of whole grain carbs without an natural sugars (meaning I check the label and it must say 0 next to sugar in the nutritional graph) at least every four hours. If I eat something very heavy, I may be able to last longer than 4 hours. But usually if I don’t stick some protein in my mouth every four hours, I’m in trouble. I’ve tracked my levels so much that I know I start feeling trouble (shaky, lack of coordination irritable etc) at a blood sugar reading of about 91.
    Thank you for the article you posted about the research showing a possible link with epinephrine.
    I hope this info helps and that you get cured very soon.
