Only thing that took care of my gas (I have very minimal gas compared to the trumpet blowing butt I had before) and all my bloating, was taking fibre supplements daily, it has helped with so many other IBD issues for me as well, bulking up my stool (no constipation), less BM's/day as I have larger deposits because of the bulking, so this cut my frequency way down, no more mucus...I can eat fibreous foods without getting gassy and bloated, I no longer look pregnant.

My GI told me to take fibre supplements daily for the rest of my life, best advice I'v ever got from any doc.

My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it!  LOL  :)

Hi Pb4,

I know you've posted this before, but could you relate which type of fibre supplements that you've had the most success with? I was under the impression that if you have Crohn's, that you have to avoid fibre, this seems contradictory. My daughter seems to be doing okay with Pentasa, but has had ongoing loose BM's. Not quite diarrhea, but very loose. Would this approach help?   Thanks, Tom.

My 13 year old daughter was diagnosed Feb. 19/07 with Crohn's of the Terminal Illium. Initially, 9 weeks of Prednisone, currently taking 1500mgs of Pentasa, and iron supplement.

You have to avoid fibre (be on a low fibre diet, not avoid it completely I believe) if you have a blockage or strictures but if not then fibre is definitely your friend...

I use Prodiem stool bulking therapy, it's similar to metamucil, some use flax seed or psyllium husk.
