I've heard sugar is supposed to be bad for our gut....not to mention our weight. A friend of mine with different problems has been using agave nectar in place of sugar. She gave me a bottle of the light and a bottle of the dark. The light is similar to honey. The dark is similar to molassis (sp?). Anyway, I was wondering if anyone here uses agave nectar in place of sugar and if so, what are you thoughts? Any good agave nectar recipe sites?
~Never officially diagnosed~
Appendectomy in 2001. Appendix perforated & gangrenous. Had pain off and on for 3 years prior. This is where all my trouble started.
Hospitalized in August 2005 with a bowel obstruction.
Colonoscopy showed definite colitis, SBFT showed narrowing of the Ileum and a possible fistula.
Both tests came back as consistent with CD.
2nd bowel obstruction February 2008. Got through it at home.
Currently not on CD meds. Following a low~residue diet and taking fish oil daily and Align probiotics daily.
