Hey...you could alternate your dosage of pred while tapering.
Fizzy drinks, beer and chocolate can give gas and possible diarrhea and upset an already ticked off colon. Won't make your flare worse. Shouldn't be drinking on pred anyway, plus sucks for your liver.
I don't know what probiotic yogs or aloe vera shots are.
Good to hear you got out and about
with your wife.
*Heather* I give suggestions, do with them what you will.
