Ileostomy and nutrition

 
This is the best website for people with an Ostomy. So much understanding.

I am interested in finding a blog about eating healthy, vitamins, for people with an ileostomy. I would like to eventually make the move off anxiety meds and dig deeper into healthy eating. We have some challenges with not being able to take time released, coated pills. Also having an ileostomy and the challenge of know what vitamins we need that we may be falling short of. 
I would hope to find someone that understands these specific struggles and has real answers that work backed by experience driven results or education on this. If that exists please let me know where I can find a blog like that. Thank you!

 

VeganOstomy.ca may help

I agree with xnine, veganostomy.ca is an absolute treasure trove of information, hopefully he’ll be able to help you. The guy who runs the site is called Eric. 

 

First, happy belated birthday. 🎂Ostomydiaries on YouTube has some videos on what she takes and why. She(Amber)has some pretty good videos on pretty much everything ostomy related. 

 

RE vitamins:  Centrum makes chewable and gummy multi-vitamins that I've been taking for years without a problem.

You’re welcome, anytime.  I would of wished you happy birthday when you posted that picture but being a non paying member I can’t comment on photos unless they’re mine. 

 

Hi 

Iv had my ileostomy for just over a year and found Bassetts Vitamins gummies easy to digest. They are available at supermarkets and pharmacies, including Boots and Tesco in UK.

Also, I suffered from anxiety and Sleep Deprivation - the Dr wanted to put me on depression tablets which I refused so I tried natural CBD oil - couple drops every night has helped with my sleep and feel confident of my stoma bag now 😊

For me the lack of sleep was causing me more anxious. 

All the best! 

 

Thanks. I smile all the time but I can’t fake smile for pictures. 

 

Feb9hh..I drink two things a nutrition drink that has protein, other vitamins and minerals , potassium pretty much everything your body needs. and  I take adult liquid vitamins from centrum they work wonders for me I have a such a boost in energy and I feel the difference when I haven't taken them.. you can find those on there website or on Amazon and the nutrition is instant breakfast, you can get the instant breakfast in powder packets and mix with milk nonfat/fat free or you can buy them already mix and ready to drink.
