    Environmental Allergies and Celiac/Crohn's/UC

    I had allergy testing done which you can see my results here. I actually need help looking at them by the way, if anyone knows how to read these results. My Allergist told me to take some Zrytec and if I didn't see any improvement, go back and see him. Well, the last thing I thought of was...

    Vitamin/Mineral Testing. Doctor Is Looking At Bare Minimum It Seems...

    I asked my doctor to do a vitamin/min/cbc testing on me. He thankfully said yes, but the vitamin and mineral testing only includes: potassium, zinc, phosphorus, magnesium, and of course my CBC w/Diff. The main thing I want to look into is anemia, so this Friday I am going to get all of this...

    Anyone Heard of Immune Boost 70? Opinions? It is A Trace Mineral Drink.

    I found this product at: http://www.amazon.com/Morningstar-Minerals-Energy-Mineral-Supplement/dp/B000CAOIZ6/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top via an article about SIBO/Celiac/Crohn's. It is a pretty well rated product and is full of minerals - though some of them look suspicious to me...But I might just...

    What Blood Work Is Needed For Crohn's/Celiac/Malabsorbtion?

    Hey everyone. I had a quick question and will get back to all who replied to me in my other threads (thank you for all of your support by the way). I've been having a very rough time of it lately. My predominate symptoms are severe stomach tightness and pain with IBS-C - no diarrhea. I have...

    Baffled: Blood Tests Positive For Celiac But Biopsy Is Negative.

    I had blood tests done nearly a year ago for Celiac Disease, which revealed 138.0/30 as a definitive positive result. The GI Doctor that ran the tests I no longer see because he was terrible. My current GI doctor said I had possible Crohn's and or Celiac but found it extremely odd that I...

    Any Digestive Enzyme Prescription Without Carragenan?

    Does anyone know if GI doctors prescribe any type of digestive enzyme without Carragenan? At the time being, I am using a lot of Digest Gold (which seems to work) but I have to use it often making it extremely expensive next to other vitamins, etc. Any options out there?

    Allergies And IBS. Also, Do You Use An Air Purifier?

    To Moderators: I have accidentally posted a similar thread under the wrong category right here. You can delete that post. Apologies in advance! I have what appears to be procolitis and the cause of it can actually be new allergies because of moving. I moved from Indiana to Arizona and every...

    Inflammed Discending Colon & Severe Pain With Bowel Movements

    If you don't have time to read (which I understand), I'm asking: Any thoughts? Should I try the Miralax again or does anyone have any other approaches for resolving severe, persistent pain from lower colon pain after bowel movements? I recently had a colonoscopy (again) and afterwards, as...

    Too Much Good Bacteria Found In Colon

    I recently had another colonoscopy and endoscopy. Previously, I showed signs of an inflammed descending colon. Now I am showing that there is too much good bacteria in my descending colon, which I am having tightness and pain - which has worsened. I have lost a ton of weight. I started...

    Capsule Endoscopy Moved Too Slowly To Capture Images. What Next?

    So I finally got a call from my GI doctor and the medical assistant informed me that the capsule endoscopy did not capture the entire small bowel throughout the 8 hours. In other words, it was moving so slowly that after 8 hours it hadn't even passed through my small bowel. She suggested that...

    Need To Gain Weight With No Dairy and No Allergens. What To Do?

    I have lactose intolerance and can't handle dairy. After trying diary, I have had a horrible long-lasting relapse which I am having difficulty getting over. I am losing so much weight because of this, however, and my new food allergies. I am eating tons of Olive Oil and Avocados with my...

    Question About Aloe Vera Juice (Filtered Whole Leaf)

    I've been out here and reading people's stories and quite often I heard about Aloe Vera Juice. So I did some research and found that it can be good for you, but for some it can also be bad in some ways (like many treatments for Crohn's). Anyway, the exact juice I bought is Filterted Whole Leaf...

    No Diagnosis. Is It Crohn's, Ulcerative Colitis, etc?

    I am having trouble with any GI doctors giving me a diagnosis - except for the fact that I have confirmed Celiac Disease. This has severely limited what I can now eat, and now my GI is telling me "possible Crohn's." If I could get your opinion based off of my symptoms as to what this could be...

    Milk Seems To Have Given Me Long-Term Pain. Need Advice.

    I have had success with cooked peas, avocados, cucumbers, zucchini in the past. Because my doctor wanted me to gain weight and try milk...and like a fool I did...I am having severe pain in what seems-to-be all of my abdominal region - especially my colon. And fasting for 2 days did nothing. I...

    Best Foods To Encourage Passing Of Capsule Endoscopy?

    I did my capsule endoscopy today and I am wondering, what would be the very best foods and liquads to encourage the passing of this pill? Also, I understand that ginger helps the digestive system work as well. I am drinking green/peppermint/ginger tea to encourage its passing as I don't want...
