Why People with Crohn’s Disease and Other Bowel Issues Should Always Carry Waste Bags with Them

People with Crohn’s disease can experience flares when they take the wrong medication dose or don’t take it consistently. Smoking can also trigger flare-ups. Because stress also affects Crohn’s symptoms, most people suffering from the disease have learned to integrate techniques to manage stress into their daily routine.

However, Crohn’s disease symptoms can be unpredictable; because the condition can be progressive, symptoms could get worse over time. Cramping, diarrhea, watery bowel movements, and other symptoms can hit you without warning.

There is a long list of foods people with Crohn’s should avoid such as alcohol, dairy products, carbonated beverages, fried foods, and foods high in fiber. Sometimes, consuming something you’re not supposed to eat can activate symptoms.

You may find yourself at a party and don’t want to appear unappreciative of the dishes and drinks the host serves. You eat them anyway and hope for the best. Unfortunately, eating the wrong things can lead to flare-ups and symptoms can hit when you least expect it.

The Benefits of Always Packing an RS2 Waste Bag

When your Crohn’s acts up, you could be anywhere. You could be at home, at a friend’s house, stuck in traffic, or on the road miles away from the closest running toilet. Because you never know when a flare-up may occur, it’s essential always to carry an RS2 waste bag wherever you go.

Our Waste Bags utilize ‘Waste Alleviation and Gelling’ technology to make sure your pee and poop remains odorless and can be thrown away in any trash can.

You can store you Waste Bags with the rest of your car emergency must-haves along with your flashlight and First Aid kit.
