So, I was watching the Rachel Ray show today and they were doing a Human lab segment on Gas products. Viewers tried different products that say they help eliminate odor when you pass gas. The names cracked me up and I know some of us when we flare can have horrible smelling gas!!! smilewinkgrin

One was called Under-Ease Gas Neutralizing Underwear and the other is called Subtle Butt (a gas absorbing adhesive you apply to your pants) I thought these were too funny. I am thinking the underwear would be a good gag gift for my dad who has UC. Hey with 2 IBDers in the family, we have to be able to laugh about it!
Diagnosed with Crohn's in 1998, father has UC we were diagnosed at the same age.

Currently on 10 mg Prednisone, 4g Sulfasalzine, VSL#3, Vitamin C, Calcium, Magnesium, D3, Chlorophyll, and LDN. Previously on Remicade, just stopped Humira after 9 months, wasn't working.

No surgeries so far.

That's too funny! I am going to have to watch that later today. They would be very useful for my hubby too, he doesn't have Crohn's or UC, we just call it "stinky butt"

On a side note, I just received a new key chain from a friend that reads " I am only speeding because I have to poop" I am having it made into a bumper sticker for my truck!!
Diagnosed on my birthday in April 2008. Happy birthday to me!!
Currently on Imuran and Pantoloc and various vitamins
Resection in October 2008, feel great now

Actually, don't laugh, but this odour-neutralising underwear *has* been invented.

I heard the inventor being interviewed on the radio, and the announcer was thinking it was hilarious and a great big joke, until the inventor said no, it's really not that funny, he has a relative (wife?) with Crohn's and the gas is a hugely embarrassing problem for her, hence the odour-eating undies.

The announcer immediately settled down after that, and they had a really terrific discussion about how inventions like these can do a lot to improve confidence for people with digestive disorders.

I wish I could provide a link to the discussion, but it was a while ago and I very much doubt it has been archived.

That bumper sticker is hilarious! I am sure my dad would love that, he travels a ton for work and has had some close calls, and he has a great sense of humor.

ivy6, actually they did have someone try out the undies on the show for a few days and he and his wife both agreed they helped, she didn't notice his gas like she did before! Practical and funny!
