Acacia is a fiber that does not thicken. I can take it just fine. I had to start out slow with it also, but it is much easier to adjust to. It costs more than Metamucil, but you can sprinkle it on/in food ans it is hardly noticeable. Heather's Tummy Fiber is the product that I have been using, designed for people with DD. I love this and I can get my grown children to use it also. I am for anything that may slow the progression of this DD for any of my children who may have inherited this DD.
Never go faster than your guardian angel can fly!
