First post, hope it is in the right place. Saw this thread about Sodium Butyrate which I am in the processing of implementing and hope to join in and get more info. I have IBS C,possibly an autoimmune mixed in, blood does not show it yet, but have some symptoms. Anyway,my gut is a mess and wanted to add in the Sodium Butyrate to help heal, but sas soon as I take even 100mg I get even more constipated, extremely hard stools, almost to the point of blockage. I have done this 3 times, takes about a week to clear up until stool softes enough to go normally. I have tried, glycerin supp, mag citrate caps, Miralax, none helps to keep moisture in my intestines for softer stools.
why is this happening, isn't is supposed to do the opposite of what I am getting? Anyone with an idea let me know, really trying to heal my gut!
