Hi Elaine...I find using oily supplements don't go over too well for me, and find the fish oil a tad difficult. Now, it could be coincidence, however...but there seems much consistency.
My doc mentioned that middle aged women have a natural predisposition to have difficulty in digesting high fatty/oil, and I would thing that it might include supplements. I didn't ask him about
something to consider anyway.
Regarding the ginger...use the supplement, not the ginger ale....too gassy probably.
*Heather* Status: ...Asacol 3 twice daily; Salofalk enemas every 3rd night
~diagnosed January 1989 UC (proctosigmoiditis)
~UC meds: Asacol (3 @ 2x daily); Salofalk enemas nightly for flares & taper to maintenance
~Bentylol (dicyclomine) 20mg as needed; Ranitidine (reflux); Effexor XR 75mg(depression); Pulmicort/Airomir (asthma)
~vitamins/minerals/supplements; Probiotics....(RenewLife Ultimate Flora Critical Care + Primadophilus Reuteri). @ bedtime
~various digestive enzymes as needed

My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
