I complained of severe gas and bloating to my GI, he told me to take fibre supplements daily for the rest of my life...of course initially those can bring on gas and bloating (which it did add to mine) but once my body adjusted (which is normal for everyone) then all my bloating disapeared and very little gas anymore, this was about 4 yrs ago now and I still take it faithfully as it has given me even more benefits than just getting rid of the bloat and cutting the gas to almost nothing...I can tolerate eating fibreous foods without getting all gassy and bloated, no more mucus, completely formed BM's, less frequency and such.

if you are having gas, then something is fermenting in your gut. grains and sugars and dairy do this cos of their sugar content (yes milk, it has the natural sugar lactose). even vegies can make you gassy cos of fermentable fiber. and yes, fiber too can make you gassy. so what doesnt? meat. eat lots of meat. the pulp of fruit is good too. the skin is the fibrous part. leafy green vegies are fementable fiber. digestive enzymes and probiotics may help some what. the best course of action is to figure out what is causing it and then dont eat it or when you do have very little. chances are if you are having gas you are also having cramps and bloating. this alone should make you want to abstain from these foods once you pinpoint it. but then again, dutch oven-ing your significant other can be kinda funny....

Probiotics usually help me only if I take it before the meal however I tend to forget.. lol
If your eating right and taking them still avoid pop, it really does it, for me anyways.
Gas is my major main problem, I know how you all feel.

i know it sounds really bad but i really dont watch what i eat. it would be very difficult to start any kind of diet lol esp. this one all of my favorite things are horrible for me. but if it helps with the gas and just how i feel in general its worth a shot... thanks!

i have a similar problem where - i do watch what i eat - but i still tend to eat the things i know i shouldnt.. it's just so hard! (darn you chocolate!!)

but what i find works for me:

- ill lay on my left side and this helps the air move and makes me more comfortable. ill distract myself with a movie or book if its really bad
- OR ill go for a walk. plain and simple. moving around helps the air to move around and get out of my system! unless of course its really painful, then im laying on my left side :P
- my mom always gave me a glass of milk when i was younger. always had gas problems when i was young.. which explains a lot! it always seemed to help me, calm my stomach and release the air! .. maybe thats just me!

ive tried tons of medicines and really didnt find them helpful. i save money and dont have to taste the awful chalkiness :P

yo kasper87 - i am not saying eat a lot of red meat, however there is a lot of good stuff in red meat and i do believe it has gotten a bad rep as causing heart problems and such when the research really shows there is no such connection. what any one puts in their body is their personal decision. i dont see the harm in a steak once a week.

from all my reading i've never come across the connection of red meat and animal fat and gas. but who knows. i've always seen it connected with carbohydrates since those are fermentable. however i abstain from fatty foods for purely health reasons. i've also found that rich foods (like cheese cake) cause gas, but then you have the milk products in there and whatever sugars thrown in to make it even sweeter.

i totally agree 100% on the no mcdonalds suggestion. fast food is like playing russian roulette with my stomach. same goes with refined sugars, processed foods, fried foods, and fruit/vegetable skins. it makes good dietary sense but especially for us with crohn's.

i think are biggest disagreements are on carb consumption and red meat (i think overall it may be an individual thing based on metabaloic type - protein or carb, as to how well one does on those foods) otherwise there are actually a lot of agreements. i think going organic is a big plus if one can afford it.

I know that since I started pred and entocort, I blow up like a balloon. Much worse that before. But if I watch what I eat, it is much better. The other day I had no breakfast, only coffee, and a mild lunch, turkey sandwich and I was amazed at how good I felt at dinnertime. Onions especially bloat me, and any fried foods or chocolate, so I try to avoid those items.

Beef is particularly hard to digest even for healthy people it can cause problems.

Rule of thumb for things that can exacerbate IBD symtpoms are;

animal fats, caffeine, fast-foods, processed foods, processed sugar (a huge lead to gas and bloating since sugar causes bacterial overgrowth and is one of the toughest things for the body to process).

Everyone is different, some can eat this and some can't eat this (this being a certain food)
I can't eat Eggs at all or i'm gas central, lol.. but I agree fast food is a big no no, which is obvious, and anything processed isn't good.
In the world we live in and the lives we live, it's not easy, esp if were always on the go (at least thats how life is in the city, I hate it)

Well Live Laugh Love is my all time favorite quote.....I have a gut who is totally understanding since he has siliac. sorry for my spelling. Some famiallar simalirities. but with him it makes it a whole lot easier to deal with. I just started Entocort so far its a life saver but sleepless nights sucks. I know quite a few have you gone through this but I am scared of what is yet to come. I was told I may need surgery. That scares me the most. 10 years undiagnosed and aperently that has made thing a whole lot worse. My doctor won't tell me a whole lot cause I also have panic and anxiety attacks plus SAD. Yes I am a bundle of joy. But I try to keep a positive aspect of things. Being on meds is fine but I just want a straight answer. What am I in for?
Thanks!
