      My consultant told me I can take it when things get bad. He said if not so bad just take half of one. When my daughter got married and I knew I would be stressed he told me to take half befor I went and it worked. I have read on here about a few people taking it. I hope this helps

      If I have to take Imodium, I just take one of the Instants that dissolve on your tongue. They seem to be quite mild but effective. Mind you not sure this would work if you are having a severe attack of Diarrhea.

Maybe ive over done the finer.as I'm new to this its so confusing but horrible too, thought I'd got it under control thank you so much

    Sorry to read about what you went thru.

    It's sad that we have suffer or go thru issues when we don't know

    More details about foods that

    Will cause a big time DI flare up when we don't know.

    Try keeping applesauce around

    And eating soft foods such as

    Yogurt I like the Yoplait Whips

    Yougut, also boxes of Progresso

    Chicken Broth and Jello.

    It is not worth paying the price

    Suffering when you have not

    Educated yourself regarding

    What will cause a flare up.

    I go on goggle and type in a question regarding diviticulitis.

    Feel Better Soon!

    I wouldn't dare to eat any pizza , the tomatoes alone would set me off.

    Did you make your own ? I think it's best to make everything yourself

    so you know what's in it. I'm struggling with what to eat and what to put with what.

    I can't eat ready made .

      Hi Maureen, I find that I have to always stick to a low residue diet

      otherwise I'm in pain . I suffer with IBS too so it's not easy.

      I can't eat white potato but I'm ok having sweet potato, I usually

      have small portions of chicken or cod with it. I struggle with greens,

      carrots and green beans are ok. I've got to the stage where I'm scared

      to eat but I love my food, it makes me miserable not knowing what to put

      With what . I can't eat dairy, e.g. eggs, cheese , milk . I really miss eggs and cheese. I'm looking for new things all the time.

      Thank you Linda for your reply and advise, im not sure about the low reside diet..? To be honest as soon as they told me i had DD the nurse just said up your fiber so thats what iv,e done, may be iv,e over done it?. Must admit im a bit clueless regards to all this, it seems i have few days normal then explosive few days, even though im sticking to the diet, i have mostly chicken, fish, mash, at least too green veg peas, beans, always mashed,too pieces of fruit and a yogurt, lots of water, few cups of tea,thats my daily meals, so not too sure were im going wrong, back to the start of divi diners, im losing so much weight its worring, has that affected you, thank so much for your help, so nice to know someone listerns what would we do without all your help thanks again

      They always tell everyone to up the fibre but it makes me worse !

      Through trial and error I know what sets me off most of the time.

      I try to avoid getting diarhea has I keep ending up in hospital because

      It's set my DD off ! You have to avoid skins, peas, beans . I've recently had my gallbladder removed so have to avoid greasy , spicy foods . Sweet things give

      me pain . Not much left ! What a life !
