I was afraid to post any earlier than this, although I started to have noticeable results around day 8.
I'll try to keep this short.
Before November 7th, I thought I was headed back to the hospital. Up several times each night, restroom 12+ times per day, blood, omg I need the bathroom 5 minutes ago urgency, severe fatigue, cramps... and I had a new pain in my upper GI that I thought could be an ulcer.
day 8, no symptoms except for still going to the bathroom sometimes twice per day. I'm talking formed and solid. Possibly still have slightly elevated levels of gas, but nothing I can't hide.
My diet has eliminated as close to all damaging Omega 6's as possible while replacing them with (large) amounts of Omega 3's. I'm eating lots of fish, taking supplements and staying away from many oils and ALL animal fats (which means no meat or cheese). I can still have non-fat milk, non-fat yogurts, and OMG, I can eat (vegetarian) baked beans. I soooooo missed baked beans since my diagnosis. In fact, there are many foods I can still eat, and I'm no chef (hence I haven't been able to do the SCD diet).
I don't want to go on and on, but I got my diet from 'The New Eating Right for a Bad Gut' by James Scala. I'd love to share more information if anyone's interested, just ask. This diet doesn't require you buy anything that you can't pick up at a regular grocery store.
I am amazed at how normal I feel, it's as if I got younger. (Touching wood a lot while typing this post, don't want to jinx it now).
