Thank you PB4! Question: what kind do you take? Did it start causing more D at first for you before it started to help things? I take two immodium in the mornings and it helps somedays and other days it does nothing. When I do have formed BM I still have trouble with frequency (seem to go a lot, and EVERY time I eat something). I guess there is nothing we can do for that huh? I will try the fibre supplements but if you have a specific kind that you want to recommend to me feel free! Thanks again
Hi LauryLu, I use a fibre supplement called Prodiem stool bulker (it has a very mild laxative in it to prevent constipation) it's very similar to metamucil...psyllium is the key ingredient. Fibre aids with both D and C...I'm not 100% with my symptoms but I'm a lot better, keeping in mind that I do use it in combination with the things I mentioned in my previous reply...as far as having to "go" a lot after you've eaten, you may want to consider cutting your portions down, eat smaller amounts per sitting and instead increasing the amount of times you eat a day so you're still getting the same amount of food, the more food you eat in one sitting the more work it is for your digestive system...some also do well with adding a digestive enzyme taken after every meal to help digest your food...natural digestive enzymes are in the form of kiwi, papaya, pineapple, mango so if you can tolerate eating those then try them rather than the supplements, if not, many have success with the supplement form of digestive enzymes.
My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it! LOL :)
