Ileostomy Tips

Usually ileostomates experience hunger more often than other people. When this happens, they should drink fruit juice or water; eat soda crackers followed by a meal as soon as possible. If you do need to eat a snack at bedtime or during the day in order to ward off nausea, try to cut down on calories somewhere else in the daytime or you will gain weight. Never skip meals in order to lose weight. An ileostomy keeps working whether the ostomate has eaten or not.
