In Case You Missed It

Dr. Ruscio’s Weekly Tip

In this week’s tip, we discussed if you should go low carb if you have IBS.


Latest Research

The Atkins diet helps with epilepsy.

Digestive secretions, including pancreatic enzymes, are anti-bacterial. Perhaps this is why a recent study showed those with pancreatitis have an increased likelihood of having SIBO.

More data supporting that gluten can play a role in IBS.

Low vitamin D associated with increased disease activity in ulcerative colitis.

Probiotics reduce inflammation and cause a favorable shift in the microbiota in seniors.

  1. Dear Mike, I have been following your material with interest and find your site an podcast to be a great source of information; keep up the good work! I would like to hear your thoughts or recommendations for gut healing post-intestinal surgery. My father had surgery to remove a Dukes A/B adenocarcinoma from his colon around six months ago and, luckily, his latest tests indicate that there is of sign of it returning. However, as one might expect, he is suffering from gut issues, is hypothyroid and on thyroxine and struggling to put on quality weight. Are there any recommendations you would make regarding pro- or pre-biotic supplementation? Would you recommend supplemental glycine? I’ve recommended some dietary changes based on an autoimmune paleo template, but it’s hard to get the buy-in for a large scale dietary overhaul. If you think there is any ‘low hanging fruit’ to go for, I’d love to know! Thank you!

    1. Hi Ria,
      Thank you. A recent study showed that visceral massage post GI surgery improved patient outcomes, so that might be something to look into. You can try some of the gut health basics I discuss, see my ebook on homepage for overview, but essentially an ad hoc paleo, or low FODMAP, probiotics, enzymes… if nothing here works consider an eval for abdominal/pelvic adhesions and or find a good clinician. You can also contact my office for a consult, http://www.drruscio.com/GetHelp. Hope this helps!
