Hi, I have ulcerative colitis and am on Asacol and prevacid daily. I also take a probiotic pill a day and have started as well a gas formula daily supplement Ganesten brand. I eat very healthy and not in huge quantities. I notice with time now that after I eat I get gas build up and flatulence. It really doesn't matter what I eat. Anything will trigger it. I do not drink caffeine, never touch fried or spicy foods either. I eat lots of fish, chicken, lactose free milk etc....
This problem is becoming very uncomfortable and I don't even enjoy going out for dinner anymore. The ulcerative colitis is under control. I was diagnosed 3 yrs ago. Is there anything that can help me. Every day has become a battle for me. There is not one day that I don't have this gas buildup. The only way I won't get it is if I don't eat at all...
Sorry to hear about the problems you're having. I have been a sufferer of colitis and diverticulitis. I have been doing a lot of research into the foods that I can eat to avoid flareups and think this might help you.
