My husband was thought to have crohn's disease, now the doctor is not so sure.
He did say he has ibs-d and c- he is constipated, and also has diarrheah flare ups about  6 times a year, he does have much diverticulosis- he also  has depression- and now the doctor said he has too much fat in his stool and they are putting him on creon 10- 2x per meal 1x per snack... he also is to eat 30g of fiber per day.
Thing is, he has been losing weight, is this because his body has not been making enzymes?
This is scaring me. He has never been so thin, he is fatigued much.. although he is just starting to get his appetitie back since he started the enzymes- which was yesterday night.
The doctor doesn't know if he has crohn's.. the pathology report says possible... but it does indicate long standing, chronic colitis-
will the creon 10 help him to gain his weight back?
What is strange, is that though he has lost weight- lots of it, and is now 160 pounds- his cholesterol was elevated- and his a1c was up from last time (he is not a diabetic- though at one point his numbers were much elevated- due to some virus and he also weighed 200 pounds at the time- so there is a tendency to type 2).
I am wondering if this is something other then just ibs- or inflammatory bowel disease.
He also has gerd- and is on omeprazole- the gi ruled out celiac-
I just don't know how much of this is normal....

Hi.. I had gallbadder removed 02 to discover high blood pressure and panic attacks followed. Lorazapam took care of the high blood pressure, I take a low dose of .5 mg at night.  complete hysterectomy in 89 from endometriosis(sp) As long as I can remember I've had stomach problems.. I've had 2 colon  and 1 egd and told I have ibs along with reflux.. Over the last 2 years I've had stomach cramps along with cold sweats it seems about once a week. I go to the bathroom sometimes 10 times before immodium takes effect. Then after immodium I don't go for 2 to 3 days so I try not to take immodium. I've learned what to eat and not, but its hard to stay on a very strict diet especially at work. I've been taking nexium a little over 2 months for reflux, and have discovered a miracle vitamin called GBPLUS!!! for ibs!!! this is why I've joined healingwell.. to tell everyone with ibs and reflux about this wonderful vitamin. I was ready to go to the hospital because I couldn't keep any food down and was starting to vomit from acid and had lost 7 pounds in one week! I also have degenerative disc disease and oste so my back doctor actually put me on the vitamin. He explained that the gallbladder stores bile that the liver pulls from to digest our food. When your gallbladder is removed they leave the tube and sometimes the liver can't get enough bile.. soo he said I needed bile and low and behold he was sooooo right!!!  the minute I put one of these in my mouth I could feel the acid being obsorbed(i need spelling lessons!! lol ) I've been taking the gbplus about 2 months and have gained 8 pounds, but this past friday I had a bad ibs and reflux day.. I had mac donalds twice, taco bell once and spices all week along with coffee... i was sooo bad and i paid for it dearly.. for 2 to 3 hours at work I went to the bathroom along with chills and sweats and stomach spasms. Today is sunday and I'm still not well from friday. It hurt real bad to take a deep breath last night and still today but not as bad. I've doubled up on the gbplus and have taken a few gas x strips. I think I had sooo much acid to come up my throat that it burnt it and maybe flowed into my lungs.. I've heard of severe gurd getting into the lungs and that is dangerous.

I will close for now.. I hope anyone who has reflux or ibs or both try this vitamin.. it soo far has been a life saver for me!   smilewinkgrin

I also took hyomax for ibs for almost a year. It worked great but it caused my heart to skip beats and caused me to have 2 bad ekgs. Also BP would drop quick after taking causing sweats and weakness, also palpatations. I had all test done on my heart in 2003, and heart dr doesn't think anythings wrong. since I haven't taked hyomax for almost 3 months my heart hasn't skipped a beat and my bp stays normal!! Thank God for GBPLUS
