Can anyone tell me why after using the clean out prep and a liquid diet for 2 days does my diarrhea subside? The last one I had, the same thing happened. It lasted a few months. Hope it is the same and longer this time.Just curious as to medical reason?Flux, Eric, Kmottus, Jeff, Drs?????Thanks in advance. collie

The only thing I can think of is kind of a take off on something I read recently when looking into methanogenic bacteria in the colon.There was one study that showed that after a colonoscopy prep some people who were previously methane producers lost the methanogenic bacteria. It could be possible that the flush out is altering the colonic flora in a way that ends up helping you for awhile, but then the colonic flora settles back into the state that it was before.It may be worth giving probiotics a shot as sometimes they help with acute diarrhea, and see if that mucking with the flora helps. Or you could talk to the doctor, maybe it would be worth doing the prep and see if it helps any. While it isn't that plesant, if it would give you several months of relief it might be worth it.K.------------------I have no financial, academic, or any other stake in any commercial product mentioned by me.My story and what worked for me in greatly easing my IBS: http://www.ibsgroup.org/ubb/Forum17/HTML/000015.html
