what to use for irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
Patients often ask what to use for irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
Fibre is a good first step to help improve symptoms.
Recommend SOLUBLE fibre supplements...psyllium (Metamucil, etc), polycarbophil (Prodiem Bulk Fibre Therapy caplets, etc), inulin (Benefibre powder), etc...plus foods such as rice, oatmeal, potatoes, and applesauce. These absorb water and form a gel so food moves more smoothly through the gut.
