Can you imagine having no pouch odour? Not even when draining.
Can you imagine a slim and discreet pouch, with gelled contents?
Can you imagine undisturbed sleep, without the need to drain or release gas?
These are just a few of the many benefits that make Diamonds™
so popular amongst ileostomates (and many colostomates) and why they are often included in their ileostomy supplies.
Independent laboratory tests and thorough patient evaluations prove the difference that Diamonds™ can make to your life, increasing comfort, confidence and freshness during ostomy appliance wear and draining.
The patented ActiveOne™ Odour Control and anti-‘ballooning’ control for ostomy bags is integral to every small sachet. So when you drop one into your pouch, you will be confident of ostomy discretion. ‘Ballooning’ of the pouch can increase the risk of leakage. It is caused by excess gas (flatus) which cannot escape from the pouch. 3 out of every 5 ileostomates who evaluated Diamonds™ said that their ‘ballooning’ was either reduced or completely eliminated.
