10 Tempting Trigger Foods IBS Sufferers May Want to Avoid

Distance yourself from dairy.

Dairy is the first food group to avoid when you have a symptom flare-up. Dairy-digesting enzymes are most active and plentiful in infancy and decline after weaning, so many adults don’t have enough of those lactase enzymes to digest dairy products.
