My gastro wants to put me on Humira for my CD/UC. I have antibiodies to remicade. I am declining Humira because I am having a fair response to the Endocort ememas. He also recommends 15 gms daily of soluable fiber---FIbersure. 9 fish oil tablets with the 9 colazals. I am also on enteric acidolphilus.
This feels like a lot to remember to take. In fact some nights I "forget " to do the enema.
My question: Is any one here bulking up with fiber and experiencing a decrease in symptoms.
I was diagnosed with Crohn's about 2 years ago. I am currently on Humira. I am also on a very LOW fiber diet. I have not had a flare up in forever but I have noticed that since I am on such a low fiber diet and in remission from my Crohn's I have been having very painful BM's only 2 times a week and they are starting to cause hemorrhoids. I would be very curious whether or not people think taking fiber helps. Keep me posted.
