Some have gotten it from doctors other than their GI, GP's, naturopaths, etc. which is why they say their doctor (GI) is not happy.ok.. I have been reading these post on the LDN and I went out and started looking on web. It states you have to have the doctor prescribe it; but yet some of you are saying that your doctors weren't thrilled some of you were taking it. So how did you get the prescription if your doctor didn't give it to you . My daughter was diagnosed in Feb of 2011. She was doing pretty good since the fall of 2011 .. but she is now in a flare and has her colonoscopy on Monday. she did well on Entocort; but I would like to ask about this LDN??
The type, quality and dosing of the cannabis extract is essential. They also vary all over the map at this point, there are no agreed upon standards.We started taking cannabis extract a week or so ago, but we aren't seeing any results.
I use product called Absorb Plus http://absorbplus.com/. Its formulated especially for IBD. Its a bit pricey but I've been using it for flare-ups for almost 2 years now and it is a godsend. Its quite tasty (chocolate, 2 types of vanilla and strawberry) - and if necessary you can completely eliminate solid foods for weeks at a time. I have and I dont know what I would have done if I didnt have it.We may even try a the liquid diet. Any advice on enteral nutrition.
