I have alot of health problems, It seems like i have to go 3-5 times a day, the doctor told me that it could be normal, but if i have to go more than 5 times it is not normal. I have Chronic q fever, Hypotyroidism, I am on antibiotics for the infection and will e for 3years-the rest of my life. I had this problem for as long as i can remember- so the antiboitics are not the cause but they do make the problem worse.
I have had a colonocphy(cant spell) and an upper gi track scope thingy, The doctor couldn't find anything wrong.
I am wondering what foods can i eat that will make my stool harder, and thus make me have to go less. I am also taking Probiotics but they don't seem to help any.
definitely want more fiberous foods. fiber helps both ways helps to keep from looses stools and helps keep from too harder stools. more foods with more fiber. for starters rice, cheese helps to bind too but whole wheat. salads metamucil and also a biggie you might want to look into a colon cleanser . will make it more thicker productive and less amounts trips to the b/r.
Thanks for the help. I will be stoping at walmart today.
I never knew that those things slow you down, i always thought that they would make it worse. Would it be worth trying a celiac diet to see if that helps, It seemed to help before but the doctor told me i don't have it, and to eat everything, even when i told him it helps.
The major foods that cause alot of people problems are wheat and dairy products.
The worse person I have ever known with explosive diarrhea was cured taking Metamucil 23 years ago-- I have been using it daily ever since to be regular. I now take the Equate brand from Wal Mart-- the orange flavored sugar free type powdered form that you mix with water.

Taking it slow is the smart thing to do-- because it is digested/brokendown and ferments and produces alot of GAS. AS your system gets use to it -- the gas will go away!
That is the way Natrual fibers work.
Take care ---Harry
