What is Fybogel?
Fybogel is a dissolvable powder that, when added to water, makes a tasty, sugar-free drink to help to treat symptoms such as constipation and stomach pain associated with diverticulosis.
Using Fybogel to treat Diverticulosis
Your colon can grow small pouches. These pouches lean towards your colon’s muscular wall and will develop in areas where blood vessels are entering the wall. This spot is generlaly weaker, allowing the pouches to form. The name ‘Diverticulosis’ comes from the pouches, which are call diverticula.
A way to reduce the symptoms of Diverticulosis is by increasing the amount of fibre in your diet. Fibre keeps your stools soft and decreases the pressure inside your colon. This allows the bowl content to move easily. Fybogel is a great way to easily add fibre to your diet. Fybogel is mixed with water and provide about two to 3.5 grams per tablespoon, mixed with eight ounces of water.
