Can you eat turnips?

I tried turnips in the past, and I recall that it made my GI symptoms worse. Now that I'm in sort of remission I'm considering trying them again. So my question comes:

Can you eat turnips without any GI problems? If so, how much is safe to eat for you?

According to this list turnips shouldn't be a problem in regards to FODMAP intolerance.

Thanks in advance.

just had a visit from my stoma nurse this morning and she told me that turnip can cause a lot of wind , I was wondering what was causing my bag to inflate and it might be the turnip , I was eating quite a lot of it lately .
