So you are saying that these forms of fiber will firm up the stool for mey2614? But wouldn't that depend on how much fluid was ingested? Increasing fiber only makes things worse for me because the slow transit time gives them all too much time to ferment and turn to gas.
If you don't have problems with gasiness psyllium based fibers (like metamucil or bulk psyllium) can do a good job.If you tend to get pain when you have more gas you may want to try something like citrucel. You can also look at higher fiber foods, whole grains, fruits and veggies, and see if those help. Fruits tend to be more soluble fiber, whole grains generally tend to be more insoluble fiber. Most fiber supplements tend to have more soluble fiber. (everything is a mix of both, but tend to have more of one or the other).
