S. Boulardii is recommended by people doing the Specific Carbohydrate Diet, as well. I have been taking it for about
a week and am on an upswing with GI issues, but I've been tweaking so many things it's hard to say if it is due to that.
I also consume mass quantities of a strong probiotic yogurt that I make myself that contains 3 specific beneficial bacteria. On SCD, these 3 yogurt bacteria (+ acidophilous if we so desire) are allowed but NO bifudus type bacteria, which you'll see in most commercial yogurt.
But get this = when I visited my GI she was giving samples of this probiotic OTC called Align, which ONLY contained Bifudus - the one I can't have on my diet!
It is really hard to understand all of this.
maintenance... I am going to try to stay on Asacol as well as the diet and probiotics.
36 year old mother of a fabulous toddler.
Diagnosed with Crohn's July 2007. I believe it's in the right side of my colon.
Tapered down off Entocort mid August. Now on Asacol 2400, Protonix 40mg/day.
On Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD) since late July and seeing improvement in "output" quality and hopefully therefore absorption. Taking SCD legal supplements: B vitamins, Folonic Acid 800mg, EnZym Complete DPP IV Aid by Kirkman, and Saccaromyces Boulardii (a probiotic yeast).
Current biggest complaints: LRQ fullness and slight burning, gastritis symptoms, horrible right hip and low back pain.
