I would ask your GI doc what they suggest since you are newly diagnosed.
I know when I had the gas and bloating, (I looked like I had a kwashiorkor belly) I just suffered through it because I didn't even think about OTC gas products. about a month AFTER I got diagnosed my coworker with an autoimmune disease told me to try dietary enzymes cause she said it helped her digest her food better so I did and I feel it helped me with keeping it less gassy and poofy. As I am healing with time, da belly is slowly getting flatter and flatter. =0)
This might sound silly but depending on if you are a man or woman, wearing looser pants/underwear or dresses with no waist or a very loose waist TOTALLY help to at least make you feel more comfortable esp during the first month.
