I have had a pouch for 26 years. Here is what cause me to get pouchitis:
1. Change of diet. Specifically eating very healthy i.e. lots of raw vegetables, salads, fruits etc.
2. (here's the weird one) When I decide to STOP drinking diet coke? Every few years I realize how bad diet coke is for me and decide to stop or switch to iced tea. BOOM.....POUCHTIS!!! Does this ever happen to anyone else? Please tell me I am not alone!
My theory is that what ever is in Diet Coke that can clean the rust off of a carburetor, can also keep my Jpouch running smoothly.
Please give me your thoughts and ideas, big or small!!
