Thank you for your post regarding weight loss and Crohns disease.
Inflammatory bowel disease affects people in different ways and therefore treatment needs to be individualised. Knowledge of any bowel resection or stage of disease ( remission or acute phase) medication being used are important to know, to be able to give the correct medical and nutritional advice.
There are many good reasons why the psyllium husk and Ensure may not work for you and that is why providing nutritional information in this forum in some situations is not going to be that helpful unless more information is known.
I agree that support within the community is not always accessible depending on location, state and territory and varying community allied and specialist health support available.
You need to be in contact with your GP who should be able to direct you to the appropriate healthcare professionals close to where you live. Alternatively you have indicated that your last operation has left you in this state. I would work with your GP and get in touch with the hospital and ring the dietitian where you had this operation ( who knows about your medical information) and let them know things are not working well for you . They should be able to help you by directing you to help closer to where you live,recommend appropriate supplements for your situation and how to get these funded.
