Hi enan...did the doctor do stool samples to test for bacterial/viral invaders..rather than assuming?
you could use fibre supplements to bulk up the stool a bit.
Children's probiotics would be a good start to replenish her digestive flora.
Was she tested for h.pylori or c.difficile or celiac disease?
Why did the doc take her off the Pentasa if it was working?
Is your daughter consuming any products with artificial sweeteners?? in an attempt for kids to not have too much sugar, many parents carelessley and ignorantly give their kids substitutes.
Is she eating any protein such as eggs? They can be scrambled or made softer with some nice toast..my mom used to make me that, yummm!!
Has she been tested for food allergies?
Did she ever have any bleeding...and how many times a day is she having diarrhea?

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