Hi all,
I am wondering if anyone has any luck with Align or any other probiotics on the market.  My dr suggested I take them (I never did until yesterday).  I finally broke down and got the Align and was wondering if it was worth it all.  I love the way I feel on Pred (except the hunger) and was hoping there was something out there that works as well.  My dr won't let me stay on the Pred so I am looking for an alternative.   I've checked out the Maker's Diet and other things like that, and honestly, that is a little extreme for me.  I cut  out the caff and reduced my sugar and white flour intake and saw no improvement.

There are some studies that suggest that Enteral feeding / the Modulen diet is as effective as corticosteroid treatment.
