Why risk it? I stuck to green. I didn't want to go through all that and have the doc say he might have seen blood but couldn't tell because I had orange jello.
Dx'ed in 1999. No surgeries.

I agree with Rider... I avoid orange. Stick with green or blue or yellow. If the orange flavor is what they're after, you might be able to find some in a health food store that doesn't have the dye in it but is still flavored "orange".

I've had orange with no problems but, unless you're like me and hate all of the safe flavors, you may want to be safe and avoid it.
