Hi...there are different probiotics...I still find the ones I use are awesome..haven't had the need to change. I do add Reuteri to my intake, but not daily. Are you in Canada?
Fibre is good because it will bulk up stool, it can lessen or quicken the transit time..depending on fluid intake (which sometimes has to be increased or lowered), which type of fibre, when you take it...etc.
Most of the fibre supplements give me gassss, do I don't use them unless I have diarrhea. But....my husband recently purchased one that doesn't give me problems...it's Panachia (by Aviva).....black...Salvia Hispanica (generic name).
It's both soluble and insoluble, take it once daily, source of protein, great source of Omega 3. It comes in a 3 lb canister, and I just mix it in water...it becomes kind of gelatenous...but really, no discomfort (but small amount of gas), which I'm hoping will improve. I take it on an empty stomach.
Your UC is throughout your colon, right?
Do make sure you get enough protein and it's good that you're cooking veggies well. It'll lessen your discomfort.
