Commented on Beano Side Effects and Warnings 7 years ago

I have recently tried Beano. Unlike other comments I have seen on this, my problem has been constipation, not the opposite! Also, I am concerned, as I am pre-diabetic. Incidentally, my blood sugar has been low in recent days, not higher as some people have reported when taking Beano.

Advice given suggests low fibre diet... but I must have a high fibre diet, due to diverticulosis.
It seems that my decision has to be whether to continue with Beano and have the discomfort of constipation, or give it up and risk the embarrassment of flatulence when in the company of others! Not much of a choice, is it?

I have recently tried Beano and, contrary to other reports I have read, believe this is causing constipation... a condition I have not been troubled with before. Advice says to avoid "gassy" foods, but this is impossible for me, as I am on a high fibre diet because of diverticulosis. I have also read that diabetics may find their blood sugar levels rise. I am pre-diabetic and lately, since I have been taking Beano, my sugar levels are actually lower! This may be a coincidence, of course. Besides eating high fibre foods I am also very careful with carbohydrates.

It seems that now my decision has to be whether to put up with the discomfort of being a little constipated all the time, or to risk the embarrasment of flatulence when in the company of others!
