Coffee and IBS

Can you still drink coffee with IBS? I love Starbucks I've been drinking it since it was 6!!!! And now I'm 16 and after having a horrible stomach virus for a long time and huge amounts of stress I developed IBS.. It's supposed to MAYBE go away after a year. But I need coffee :(

My boyfriend had to give up coffee because it was the main cause of all his stomach issues.  He drinks tea now.  There are coffee-like drinks you can try.  Look in the coffee aisle.  Also folgers has a low-acid coffee, Smooth something.

Yes you can... It could cause some discomfort but otherwise shouldn't hurt you. I have chrons and can still drink coffee.

Coffee is one among the drinks professionals usually advocate to avoid, primarily thanks to its alkaloid content. Drinking decaffeinated  coffee could appear sort of a logical resolution, but it, too, will cause a occurrence of IBS symptoms. shift to a coffee-like different, like a soy-based or herbal-based drink, may provide relief, and avoiding farm or sugar merchandise more to your occasional could, as well. Speak to your gastroenterologist before you add something unaccustomed your diet, notably if you've got severe IBS symptoms.
