How long have you been taking metamucil? If you are still new to it, a big load of fiber would still cause an upset. I don't have any troubles with fiber since I have been taking supplements for a few years now. I have a problem if I DON'T take the fiber. Fiber I hear is good for diabetics but make sure that you take it easy. The RDV of fiber is 25-30g per day but you must do this on a slow intake. For some people, VERY slow.
