A high-fibre diet may help you relieve constipation and feel less bloated.
Your doctor and dietitian will help you make a high-fibre eating plan based on your personal needs. The plan will include the things you like to eat. It will also make sure that you get 30 grams of fibre a day.
Before you make changes to the way you eat, be sure to talk with your doctor or dietitian.
Follow-up care is a key part of your treatment and safety. Be sure to make and go to all appointments, and call your doctor or nurse call line if you are having problems. It's also a good idea to know your test results and keep a list of the medicines you take.
