Well still no new on my Crohn's diagnosis, the IBD 7 test came back but my doctor said it didn't jump out at them, but that doesn't mean i don't have Crohn's, so she wants to do another test.

I saw my primary care doctor and found out i might have Hypothyroidism, so I'm waiting for the results on that.

Been taking Fiber supplements like my doctor said too but they don't seem to have an effect.

So all in all i just feel like I'm slipping into a hole without a bottom.

Just wish they would diagnose me with something so i can get some treatment and stop the viscous cycle.


well sorry for ranting just needed a place to let it all out as i have been really depressed lately

Thanks for listening

Sorry that you're feeling down John. Not knowing what's going on is very frustrating.

I think that some fibers are better than others. What you want is a 'bulk forming laxative' - if I have bad D, I take Metamucil capsules - because they're easy.

Hope you get some test results and answers soon.
CD since July 2007 - prenatal vitamins + extra vit. D, vit. C and iron, fish/flax oil, probiotics

Following excellent Omega-3 diet as per James Scala's 'The New Eating Right for the Bad Gut' - got me out of a flare.

Sorry that you're struggling so. And I'm sorry that they haven't been able to pinpoint and name your illness yet. Keep your chin up. I'm sending positive thoughts your way.
