Thanks guys! I've been on prednisone for 3 1/2 months now, in various does from 40 to 5mg. For a probiotic, I'm drinking Kefir - it has like 10 bacteria and I figure the more the better! I'm am trying to get enough protein, I also have whey protein powder, peanut butter, cheese, soy (I should make my sig reflect this.) Thanks for the reminder, though, I wanted to introduce some beans - maybe lentils would be a good start.
I'll think about what could be causing irritation. I'll really trying to avoid anything that would be rough passing through the colon such as too much insoluble fiber, raw vegatables, popcorn, hard seeds, etc.
