Is it bad that i eat raisin bran every night in order to poo in the morning? If i dont eat it then i have a really hard time.

No problem: Raisin Bran in high in fiber and makes your stool softer than it would otherwise be. The only problem might be if you get board with it, in which case you could substitute any number of high fiber cereals. Another way to do the same thing is with Metamucil or other over the counter sources of fiber. ...Read more

Bloated: Raisin bran will definitely draw extra fluid into your bowel and stimulate a bowel movement. Maybe try a smaller amount or alter the timing of your cereal. You can also try fruit instead . All the best. ...Read more

Is it ok to eat that raisin bran crunch cereal if I have diverticulitis, it has oat clusters and regular oats in it as well.

Is it ok to eat that raisin bran crunch cereal if I have diverticulitis, it has oat clusters and regular oats in it as well.

It is fine: I don't think any foods cause diverticulitis. There is no evidence that seeds, nuts, etc can cause diverticulitis. By the time that stuff gets to your colon it is all the same consistency, so i tell my patients not to limit their diet if they have diverticulosis. ...Read more

Fiber v constipation: One of basic tenets of bowel function is consuming enough fluids & fiber plus getting enough exercise. Bran is a great source of fiber but it's only one source. Consider aiming for 25-35g/d plus water. If more fiber, fluids & exercise aren't enough, go see your FamilyDoc for evaluation. Irritable bowel syndrome is more common than inflammatory bowel disease. Consider checking thyroid function. ...Read more

?Dehydration: You may need to increase your intake of fiber and water. You may take a fiber laxative like Metamucil and drink enough water daily so that your urine is colorless. For the long term you may try to increase your intake of fiber foods.

Everything?: If you're not going regularly, you need more than Raisin Bran. Add psyllium husks (1 or 2 tablespoons) every day, plus lots of water. Magnesium to bowel tolerance (you can't OD on magnesium because it will give you diarrhea, stomach upset). Find a dose that works. Stimulants like prunes also will help. Have you checked your thyroid. Constipation is a common symptom of hypothyroidism. ...Read more

Recovery phase: Most likely you are recovery from loss of a lot of important fluids and electrolytes in your system, if you had a stomach virus. You need to increase fluids and make sure to get potassium and magnesium, which are lost with diarrhea and vomiting. Coconut water is a good source of fluids and electrolytes. If you don't start to feel better, call your doctor. Would avoid the bran until you drink more. ...Read more

I have raisin bran every night cause it makes me poo in morning, added yogurt to diet and have lots of gas, and stomach ache in morning- not lactose.
?

Yogurt contains milk: Some people are quite sensitive to milk products - and as much as I like yogurt, you might want to try stopping consumption of that and seeing how your symptoms are...If your symptoms improve, then you might want to try Lactaid or something like that to help you digest the lactose in milk. You could make your own yogurt with soy milk if you want the benefit of those 'probiotics'...capsules also OK ...Read more
