Just wanted to let everyone battling DD to know that my GI doc touted the benefits of fiber and water in the daily diet, but failed to mention that fiber can actually be counterproductive when someone is in the midst of an attack or even 2 weeks following an attack. I learned that fiber should be introduced slowly, after the attack has passed. Otherwise, it may be too much for the gut to process, and end up making matters worse. I just completed a 10-day round of antibiotics for DD successfully, and am now taking a fiber supplement to make sure I don't make the same mistake as I did previously, that is, not adding nearly enough water and fiber to my daily diet. I won't make that mistake again.
