Hi Bennie....It wasn't food causing a flare, but sometimes food will give symptoms..but they wouldn't last as does a flare. If you ask bratcat, she'll probably be able to look back and see some symptoms that have been creeping up.
How many times a day is she having diarrhea?
What was her schedule at for Rowasa?
The Gatorade might have had aspartame or artificial sweeteners in them that would have possibly caused her some more diarrhea. She could try to use a fibre supplement to bulk up the stook a bit.
Is she taking a any supplements? Is she taking any calcium supplements?
Is she able to eat anything at all?
Hope she's able to get things controlled fairly quickly.
