Has she been officially diagnosed? Is she under the care of a GI? Is she currently on a gluten-free diet?

Why would her Gastro not give her something for Diarrhea? Imodium id the fastest, best that I know about, also you make see if cutting out wheat and dairy helps. It can take 3-6 Months for the colon to heal completely, also you should try Protein Shakes, Ensure and chewable Multivitamins so she doesn't suffer from a lack of nutrients. Hope this helps :)
