Thank you so much everyone! Well, getting him to another Dr has so far been fruitless. He likes his IDD and is, frankly, sick of Drs after all he went thru. I'm still working on getting him interested in 'a 2nd opinion'.
Thank you for all the suggestions -- So am I to understand that my Mom could go to the health food
store and get for him a 'general', refrigerated acidophilus w/ the high cultures? (I don't live there, yet) Would this be in capsules?
What was confusing to me was that from what I read sounded like you needed different specific probiotics for different specific bacterias.
If I have understood you correctly, then this would be manageable and I'll get my Mom
and Dad right on this! Hey, I don't suppose vodka counts as a 'fermented' drink, does it?......... No, he doesn't drink too much, but does occasionally enjoy a couple martinis before dinner
THANK YOU AGAIN! I will use this new info for myself too!
