Hi all
 
It seems like since I've been diagnosed with Crohn's I have been super sensitive to heat.  If I am in a store and it is warm in the store I will start to feel faint and will have to sit down.  Is this normal for the disease or is there a supplement I can take to help with this issue?  My daughter is getting tired of holding my place in line while her mom has to go sit down.
 
I was also considering taking Primadolphilus Reuteri.  I was on Align for a couple of months and didn't notice any benefits from it.  Anyone have any suggestions on that?
 
Thanks!
 
Currently taking Humira every other week, Pentasa (500 mg 8x daily), Multi Vit, Super B complex, Xanax as needed

faint equals dehydrated, and low blood pressure. To hydrate drink a bit of water then a drink of you choice preferably not soda. Oral rehydration therapy (ORT)

this includes fluids, salt, and yes even a bit of sugar. look at the wiki page shows zinc also.

When this happens in the grocery store, I usually have my daughter get me an un-sweet tea. I still have to sit down though.

"Many recipes exist, but most are some easy-to-remember combination of water, sugar, and salt. An example of such is 1 level teaspoon of salt, 8 level teaspoons of sugar, and (optionally) 4 ounces of orange juice; mixed into 1 liter of clean water."

theres the recipe. i.e. put some salt and sugar in your unsweetened tea ;)
as far as the anemia that is associated with crohns which also can cause the faintness theres alot on what iron supplement is best on another post.

as far as the Primadolphilus Reuteri which helps digest i dont drink milk or eat yogurt but it looks like a good probiotic.

I get like that too especially if a store is warm. I am not sure what the cause is, but it is irritating. I don't seem to have as extreme a reaction to it as you do, it just makes me REALLY uncomfortable. Sometimes afterwards I get something a little sugary like a popsicle and that seems to help some.

I use the Primadolphis Reuteri. I just switched to it about 2-3 months ago. So far so good. I ate gravy last weekend made with milk and had no problems with it at all. PB4 is the person who recommended it, so hopefully she will be along soon with her thoughts.

I'm not sure about the temp thing but I started taking chicken broth in a Starbucks steel lined to-go cup everywhere I go. People just assume I have coffee in it and the steel lining keeps it warm for almost 8 hours. The salt helps when I am feeling a bit nauseous and the fluid is never a bad idea. When I had a desk job, I just kept it at my desk and sipped it all day long. When it ran out, I made more. Now I keep it in my car and sip it every time I get in and out. Also I think cause its chicken broth it must have "some" nutritional value.
