I know it has diuretic properties as well and I need to check for interactions with the host of other drugs I consume.  Just looking for anyone else's experience with this.

Hi Broom, Sorry I never heard of this.
Hi, I am teddybearweiser, I am a male.
I was diagnosed with crohns disease when i was admitted to the hospital

in 1992, in Jan of 1993 I was back in the hospital for surgery for my crohns. I had part of my right colon resectioned with ilecolonstomy.

My GI doctor has me on and Humira. B-12 injection once a month.
Also diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis.

Everything I found looked good, except this site said it could irritate the GI tract. This was listed as a "mild side effect."
