I find it difficult to eat enough fruits and vegetables. Is there any harm in taking a fiber supplement every day?
There's no evidence that daily use of fiber supplements — such as psyllium (Metamucil, Konsyl, others) or methylcellulose (Citrucel) — is harmful: Fiber has a number of health benefits, including normalizing bowel function and preventing constipation. It's best to get fiber from food, because supplements don't provide the vitamins, minerals and other nutrients that fiber-rich foods do. But fiber supplements can contribute to the recommended daily intake. Fiber supplements can cause abdominal bloating and gas, at least initially. So if you have intestinal problems, talk to your doctor before adding a fiber supplement to your diet. It's also a good idea to ask your doctor or pharmacist whether fiber supplements interact with any medications you take. Fiber supplements can decrease the absorption of certain medications, such as aspirin and carbamazepine (Carbatrol, Tegretol) and others. Fiber supplements can also reduce blood sugar levels, which may require an adjustment in your medications or insulin if you have diabetes. If you plan to take fiber supplements, start with small amounts to minimize problems with gas. Also be sure to drink plenty of fluids every day. Eye vitamins: Can they prevent or treat glaucoma?, Ground flaxseed. ...Read more

Working with Doctors: It is not normal for any physician to approve or disapprove one's food choices unless there is a disease or treatment issue. The answer here is simple and obvious. Of course there are diets that include too many of one food source. The extremes do happen. But, if you are getting a good mix of other calories and nutrients then in general we have little to say about your specifics. ...Read more
