Thanks pb4. I am not entirely sure I understand prebiotics. You? I know I consume a lot of fructose since I eat a lot of fruits, But other prebiotics (such as FOS) are specifically forbidden on SCD. I'm a little lost.
36 year old mother of a fabulous toddler named Mara. Symptoms began after Mara's birth, with widespread pain/stiffness and mucus in stool. Had seen blood in stool for years prior but believe (and still suspect) hemorrhoids and/or fissures for this particular manifestation.

STARTED LOW DOSE NALTREXONE SEPT. 26TH www.lowdosenaltrexone.org. Also see: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/sites/entrez?db=pubmed&cmd=Retrieve&list_uids=17222320

Diagnosed with Crohn's July 2007. The only visible areas of inflammation via scope were my stomach, rectum, and somewhere else in my colon (was too out of it to hear where, exactly). Pill cam, SBFT, CT Scan all were normal.

TRYING MY BEST TO PRECLUDE FUTURE COMPLICATIONS.

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 burning now gone. Gastritis symptoms are also quiet now. What was horrible right hip and low back pain has subsided about 60%. I'm pretty much feeling normal since the SCD/Supplements/Naltrexone but the fatigue still occurs and I in no way think I do not have more symptoms in my future.

I grasp the "frutose" issue. But, I'm not sure I understand if there is/is not any difference between prebiotics and probiotics. Can anyone clarify this for me?

Prebiotics are nondigestible food ingredients that stimulate the growth and/or activity of some bacteria, like bifidobacteria, in the colon...they escape digestion in the upper GI tract. FOS is a prebiotic. So prebiotics are food for bacteria that are in your body.

Probiotics are supplements with good bacteria or yeast. So I guess VSL#3 would be a probiotic. I loosely call yogurt a probiotic, but I guess it's really the good bacteria in it that are probiotic. So probiotics add good bacteria to your body.

What I find so interesting is that some prebiotics are allowed on the diet I'm on and some (most, I am thinking) are forbidden.
