Has anyone on here with a j-pouch tried the Ketogenic diet and experienced increased butt burn due to what you're eating and looser stools? I had been doing keto for a few months and losing weight but I was having some of the worst butt burn I'd had in quite a while. Then I developed a major peri-anal abcess that U had to have surgery to drain. I wondered in the persistent butt-burn because of incontinence lead to the abcess? Anyone have experience with that? Thanks in advance.
I was cautioned by a dietician when I inquired about the keto diet for myself. She said that the keto diet stresses the kidneys quite a bit and with a j-pouch we are in a state of slight dehydration all the time due to the lack a colon. This also stresses our kidneys.
I tried it for about 2 weeks and didn’t like it. I am vegetarian and had a difficult time so gave up and went back to my normal diet. I have to admit however that the keto diet saved my cousin’s life (she has all her bits) and she is thriving on it.
An abscess can lead to fistula in most cases, from what I heard.
