I realize a great deal of digestion and absoption of nutrients take place in the small intestine. There is a lot of information about being careful with time released and coated medications, so it only makes sense that some of the nutrients from foods are sacrificed as well. I've been trying to determine what probiotic might work best with an ileostomy. Some sound like they're more like a laxitive, which is certainly not needed. If we no longer have a colon/bowel, should we look for specific kinds of pobiotics? OR are they even recommended? I sometimes wonder if medications are working properly. I still feel so exhausted - even weak at times. I'd like to be able to get back to workouts and have more ambition.
Thanks for any advice and/or recommendations,
