I found that the diarrhea would actually respond quite well to a high-carb diet of "gentle" foods like pumpkin, apple-sauce, and broth. I was because these foods seemed to have a positive effect and the Queens experience that I've shifted away from low-carb paleo and actually pretty much shifted away from the typical conception of paleo.
The short story on butyrate is that it is made in the colon by fermentation of carbohydrates.
Otherwise, conventional low-carb diets generally do a very poor job of generating butryate in the populations studied. It was pretty fatty, but I am personally a bit more interested in the high-protein part since contrary to popular belief, protein is fermented in the colon. Overall this paper and many others on the effect of low-carb on gut bacteria seem to paint a bleak picture. In the meantime I continue to enjoy success from diet that includes ample amounts of carbohydrates that work for me, like rice and buckwheat, and keeping my protein low.


However, to describe them as just low-carb is a disservice to the diversity of their diet. In a previous post I discussed the many plants they eat. There are several papers on this, the most recent being High-protein, reduced-carbohydrate weight-loss diets promote metabolite profiles likely to be detrimental to colonic health.
I had thrown caution to the wind and hadn't bothered trying to be paleo beyond avoiding gluten and junk food. I think low-carb can play a role in fighting disease, but I think it's a mistake to carry on this kind of diet long term.
When I started paleo, I found low-carbing did an amazing job eliminating the worst IBS symptoms and my GERD disappeared. In the high-protein diets branched-chain fatty acids (BCFAs) isovalerate and isobutyrate were increased. The SCD doesn't advocate low-carb forever, but healing and then adding in carbs cautiouly to figure out which ones are benign.


Perhaps low-carb can work in the long-term if small amounts of certain carbohydrates or foods with SCFA are consumed (fermented foods or butter, which is high in butyrate), but there is little research into this.
IBD patients have low levels of it in the colon and administering it reduces symptoms significantly. Another caveat is that butyrate is present in certain foods, but this has been poorly studied, which is unfortunate.
