Does anyone know if it's better to take certain Probiotics depending on where your Crohn's is located? For example, my Crohn's is mostly loccated in my large intestine. I have 2 different probiotics in my medicine cabinet that I've yet to use:
*One of them was given to me by my pharmacist and it has LACTOBACILLUS GG
*The other one was given to me by my GI and it has BIFIDOCACTERIUM INFANTIS
And I know there's lots of other "live bacteria" names like that...I just don't understand the difference in them all. Would some of those "live bacteria" be better to take than others depending on the location of the Crohn's or do they just all work the same?
Anyone have any thoughts?
