Does anyone add this to broths or other foods allowed on clear liquid or full liquid diet?  

Any other comments on benefits or detriments of beef derived collagen peptides as it pertains to D is appreciated.

    Yes! I use it! It helps me a great deal, by soothing my gut and bowel and also filling me a bit more when on liquids only. I add turmeric as well. There is a lot of information about how beneficial it is. I believe it has really helped me! I am interested to know if it helps others too. Hope you feel better!

      The  diet part has been the hardest for me, I was diagnosed in February with DD and abscess, developed majorly anxiety/panic and have lost 34lbs in 4 months afraid to eat. Any help or suggestions on diet ? I have just Diverticulosis now, but feel like I having a flare up but all tests show no signs of one freaks me out.

      I lost a lot of weight too, afraid to eat anything! For weeks after the liquid only diet, I ate only eggs, gluten free toast, avocados, and broth with collagen/gelatin. I ate canned fruit, apricots and pears. And

      I started taking a green pill supplement that has probiotic in it to help with the fact that I couldn't eat my veggies . I can eat some now, but they have to be cooked well. I am 6 months out. Still have twinges. I do benefiber in water in the morning. LOTS of water all day! I think I will add a second round of benefiber in the afternoon to be sure things move. My doc suggested Miralax before/during travel. It makes me feel very very sick, so I won't be using that. The collagen I use is Custom Collagen. It's been good for me and priced well on Amazon. I am in the US so you may have to find an equivalent if you are elsewhere. I hope you feel better! It's an awful condition!

      Thank you for the info, I’m just freaked out cuz I was doing so good, now I have had diarrhea, lower back pain and burning feeling in lower ab for 12 days now. Can’t shake the diarrhea, no blood just mucus at times, all my blood work and cat scan and Endoscopy are normal, I see the Dr tomorrow to do stool tests to see if it’s IBS, SUDD, Candida, and am insisting on a colonoscopy. When I first felt the flare up I started on the 48 liquid , then 5days soft, and now just do Salmon, chicken, potatoes, rice, white toast , crackers and soup beef bone broth , yams, cream of wheat and pancakes, everything I was able to eat before, I keep a food journal, and now I am going to use Low FODMAT diet, but still have diarrhea ugh so frustrating. So then I get afraid to eat anything, but cannot afford to lose any more weight. I heard GSE, Aloe Vera Juice, and Golden Milk helps? ? So many diff things out there don’t know what to use or do. So all the advice or help is so appreciated, prayers and best wishes.
