Hi all,

We’re really pleased to announce an AMA with dietitian Sophie Medlin, who has a wealth of expertise focusing on gastrointestinal and colorectal health. The thread is open now for questions and Sophie will be returning to answer questions throughout the week.

''Sophie Medlin is a well-recognised consultant dietitian, founder of CityDietitians and is the Chair for the British Dietetic Association for London. Sophie has expertise in gastrointestinal and colorectal health. She worked in acute hospitals specialising in gastrointestinal diseases before moving into academia, where she worked as a lecturer at King’s College London.

Sophie is a go-to spokesperson for media when it comes to evidence-based nutrition, recently leading the clinical team in Channel 4’s flagship gut health programme, Know Your Sh**. Sophie works hard to myth busy and share evidence based nutrition information via her social media channels @sophiedietitian.''

Please ask your questions from now - though the thread will be open until Sophie has finished answering questions.

As always, please remember our guidelines - one question per user, follow-ups only if there’s time and most questions have been answered, and please keep it civil. Also if one topic is dominating a thread, mods might request that people don't continue to post what's effectively the same question or point.

Thank you very much - got told yesterday that I can start to come off some of the meds they put me on, so will be having blood tests every three months for a bit to make sure nothing shoots back up.

Perfect x

Thank you, that's actually some of the most helpful advice I've had since starting the diet several years ago!

I am glad! Really happy to help x

@SophieMedlin if you're taking a couple of extra questions (and because I can't afford to come to your clinic atm!), can you mention a 2 or 3 foods which are high in soluble fibre but low in insoluble fibre please?

When I try and research those good for soluble fibre, many seek to be high in insoluble fibre too!

Thank you so much

Try to be careful with skins, peels and pips in carbohydrates, fruits and vegetables. Stick mostly to things that would push though a sieve after you've chewed them like root veggies, softer fruits like melon, oats and weetabix. Things like soups and smoothies are great as are tinned peaches. Hope this helps! S

@SophieMedlin thank you, pleased to know I can have wheetabix again! Although I couldn't afford a clinic appointment at present, is it possible to purchase any of the resources you have about managing a low-fibre diet?
