    Crohn's and PDA/High functioning autism

    Hey, t-bone, i was just watching documentaries on youtube about autism and aspergers. Made me a little sad in a way. what i would give just to change and be able to be more social? However, that can be difficult with the Crohns disease. Something i had forgotten was the high anxiety that...

    But i wish they'd just relent and treat us all this way. That study looks quite promising. All these promises, and how long have we been waiting. Thanks for the updates though.

    Wow, that's a bit sad. But i think the Australians are doing well with trials still, aren't they? I sincerely hope that all is not lost in this study area for us with UC and Crohns. thanks for the update.

    Sticky Medical Marijuana for Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis

    I used to use cbd for anxiety, higher levels, which were quite expensive, worked best. However, i had a run in with cancer so used FECO which helped a great deal. I did find the body gets used to it. I think i will always use some form of cbd. Hope it helps you.

    I've been using it for cancer, but it's not a painkiller for me, nor does it help the crohns disease.

    I wonder how long we will have to wait for this treatment. Probably years knowing the UK at least. But any news is good news.

    Wow, sounds interesting. I hear that Prof Brorody in Australia has claimed the Crohn's Cure, according to the Daily Mail. Yeah, just as i'm fighting cancer along comes a Crohn's cure, just my luck. Let's all be hopeful.

    Dealing with PEG pain

    I still have E028Extra and bland foods too. It is always difficult to reintroduce foods, but if tolerant fine. If not, back to the bland basics. what i had was similar to MRSA but very slightly different.

    Sticky Medical Marijuana for Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis

    Bergy, I heard that drugs stay in the system for three days. So I could get into trouble for drug driving (not that I go out much). Also, it's illegal here although they do sort of allow for personal use only.

    Sticky Medical Marijuana for Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis

    It's been 5 days since I started cbd with thc. I think things are different already. I'm not visiting the loo anywhere near as much. I'm not sure about the pain relief though. Mind, my Crohn's isn't good at the moment. Hasn't been for a long while and I have a lot of inflammation with my...

    So, do you people on IV eat anything, and do you have diarrhoea if you just have IV. I really feel I need to give my whole digestive tract a break. I've been on liquid feeds for around 13 years and still suffer in the whole digestive tract. Any advice please. I so want to be diarrhoea free...

    PH level

    Hi, I am wondering if any of you know what my dietician meant when she said my ph level (stomach acid measure from PEG) was only 0.5. She told me to mention it to my gastro bloke, which i did, and he said it makes no sense to him whatsoever and he didn't know what she was on about. Do any of...
