Welcome to part three of my “Mastering Life with an Ostomy” series!
Welcome to part two of my “Mastering Life with an Ostomy” series!
A type of product I usually recommend to ileostomates and colostomates who have loose or liquid output are gelling sachets. Eakin has their own called Perform, and that’s what I’ll be covering in this review!
Managing liquid ostomy output can be difficult, but my recommendation is always to try a gelling product. In this review, I’ll be looking at the Pearls gelling sachets by Trio Healthcare Ltd.
Preparing for travel can be stressful and hectic as it is, but when you’ve got an ostomy there are a few extra things that you’ll want to be aware of.
I had previously written about dealing with thick ostomy output, but many ileostomates have the opposite problem: liquid output. In this post, I’d like to go over a few tips that you can use to thicken up your output. These tips apply to colostomates who have loose stools but are directed more towards ileostomates.
Liquid output, “ballooning” and odor – three problems that many ostomates are faced with on a daily basis. While some of these challenges can be remedied by changing what you eat or how often, for some, these issues simply never go away. Using multiple products to combat these problems separately may not be desirable, so when a product claims to be able to tackle them all, it certainly warrants some review.
Today I’ll be looking at the ConvaTec Diamonds sachets, which I purchased from a local ostomy supplier.
