Those sugary drinks can work against you! Try chicken broth, or beef broth, and Pedialyte. Do you have Immodium, Bentyl, or Lomotil? Try to always keep these things on hand. You can take an Immodium after each stool up to six times daily. Works wonders sometimes just getting the cramping and urgency to STOP! We CD patients get so fragile so fast! Even after one day of bad cramps and lot of "D" you can get run down. My kids who have gone to college now... make me put Pedialyte under my bed:) sweet! Just in Case.
Also, Gatorade contains lots of salt which isn't good for "kidney stones" I've found.
