I guess I am not sure why I should up the Align or take fiber I do not have diarrhea. I just take the Imodium when going out as a precaution. I might not need it but I feel "safe" with a small doseage. Two days with no mucous or visible blood - maybe, just maybe going in right direction. Just MAYBE the 6 MP has kicked in at this doseage - now that would be GREAT!
Anyway, Dr. MacDermott is a world renown gastro doc who has written many papers and done about 30 years research on Crohns and UC. I plan on following his recommendations to the letter - anxious to find out what he recommends, etc.
