It has had a great success rate for C Diff., but I am wondering if Ulcerative Colitis patients are having success with it too?

I've read about it, it looks to be a developing treatment in Australia based on the reports. However I haven't run into anyone who has had it done in the States. I considered it, however since its not an approved treatment, that I know of, I don't think insurance would cover it. Not too mention there aren't any established procedures for treatment, or controlled studies with flora/fecal material being utilized from a single healthy donor to more than one individual with UC or C. Diff. Just my thoughts.

There was someone here quite a while back who was either trying it or thinking about it. You might find something about in in a search.
