I've been struggling with diagnosis for several months now. We've had two colonoscopies in just a couple months with 2 different docs & labs. I definitely have proctitis & colitis, now I'm awaiting approval of the mini camera test to look at inside my small intestines to rule out crohn's disease, &/or surgery. My doc told me to eat yogurt. Then I stopped for awhile & have started eating it again, pain appearred to be lessening for a spell, now it's coming back. Could it be the yogurt? I just wonder about the supplements, I always understood it's best to get vitamins &minerals, etc. naturally from foods...
