How do you effectively address IBS-D? Immunoglobulins
What are the results of using immunoglobulins for IBS?
“…overall improvement in symptoms with better stool consistency, decreased frequency as well as reductions in abdominal pain, bloating, distention, and incontinence.”
Who shouldn’t load up on immunoglobulins? Someone with IBS-C or constipation. For these people immunoglobulins are step 2 after addressing motility issues.
What are the side effects?
"The most commonly reported adverse effects of oral Ig therapy include mild nausea, constipation, stomach cramps, headache, and increased urination. The incidence of these has been seen in 2–5% of clinical studies of SBI (B Burnett, EnteraHealth, personal communication, 2016; J Marc Rhoads, unpublished results, 2016)."
How does one address the side effects?
⬇️ Reduce the dosing of immunoglobulins (temporarily),
🚰 Drink more water
🏃🏻♂️ Be more active
The side effects will subside.
Why are there side effects? Immunoglobulins bind to toxins to eliminate them. This changes the toxins' size and shape making them so they can’t flow through a damaged gut lining (which helps reduce inflammatory issues).
What’s the suggested dosing?
10 grams per day for 10 days and 5 grams per day for 6 weeks.
What do I personally see work best?
8 grams per day for the first month, 4 grams per day for the second month, and then 2 grams per day with spore-forming probiotics for 4 to 6 months. This will not only help with the diarrhea but also with food intolerances, bloating, immune system issues, inflammatory issues, etc.
Either way, these are aggressive doses of immunoglobulins. Small efforts won't resolve huge underlying issues.
