New to this board. I have type D and once in a while type C IBD. My biggest problem is the gas. Luckily there is no or very little odor, just LOTS and LOTS of air. Unless it is carbonated,fatty, fried, or greasy what I eat has very little effect. I tried may over the counter drugs and the only thing that helps day to day is Equallcatin. That took care of most of the *D*. But the gas remaines. Any ideas?Also I read the boards here, What does the Peppermint Pills do? Help eliminate the gas or simply make it smell better? I hope that isn't a silly question. What is Acidophulis? where do I get it at?What is Caltrate and where do I get it at?Thanks!
