Anyone out there follow what they call a "white diet" ?
It seems that red meat has been a no no for me now. I am getting tired of eating chicken & rice.
Fish is not something that is easily to buy here.
I am eating a lot of protien bars.
My hemagloben was down to like 80 in Sept. which they say is not good at all.
Nov. was iron infusions weekly to get it back up again. I am anemic. Is that a common thing with Crohnies?
This month no iron inf. and I am not feeling very well. Stomach aches, headaches & nausea. loss of appatite.
I am loosing more weight was 109lb now I'm 107.
I am thinking I may end up having to get iron infusions all the time. ???
They boosted my Remicade up to monthly now and I am afraid that this expensive drug is not working for me ????
Only time will tell I guess. I just don't want to loose any more weight. I did feel better with the iron inf. although it did cause me to have dirreaha lots which has happened previously.
I am also using a butt paste called Nitrol which seems to be working fairly well for me.
Can't sleep - its early am here and my stomach hurts.
praying for a good night's sleep and a happy bottom!! :o]
