Do you notice your fingers and hands get cold and loose colour also? Or go blue?

Do your toes go blue? As well as get cold and white?

This is certainly a circulation problem.

Do you smoke? How many?
Do you do much exercise?
Are you overweight?
Do you drink? How much per day/week?

There is a condition called Raynaud’s Syndrome, which effects the circulation in the feet and hands causing symptoms of cold and lose of colour from hands and toes. Or turn them blue.

Answer by Authority
You cannot prevent irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). But proper self-care may help minimize symptoms and perhaps extend the time between episodes. This includes quitting smoking, avoiding caffeine and foods that make symptoms worse, and getting regular exercise.

Many people with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) find that eating prompts symptoms of abdominal pain, constipation, diarrhea (or, sometimes, alternating periods of constipation and diarrhea), and bloating. Making adjustments to your diet can provide relief.

* Limit or eliminate foods that may make diarrhea worse, including caffeine, alcohol, milk products, foods high in sugar, fatty foods, gas-producing foods (such as beans, cabbage, and broccoli), and the artificial sweeteners sorbitol and xylitol (often used in sugarless gum and sugarless candy).
* To reduce constipation, add fiber to your diet, drink plenty of water, and get regular exercise.
* Keep a daily diary of what you eat and whether you experience symptoms after eating.
* Eat slowly and have meals in a quiet, relaxing environment.
