not UC, however....at least they can be seen through C-scope and stool samples.

~diagnosed January 1989 UC (proctosigmoiditis)
~5ASA: Asacol (6 daily) + Salofalk enemas (increase for flares tapered to maintenance)
~Bentylol (dicyclomine) 20mg as needed
~vitamins/minerals/supplements 
~Probiotic 3(Natural Factors Protec) bedtime + 1 (Primadophilus Reuteri) occasionally
~multi-digestive enzymes as needed ....bromelain 1 - 2x daily
~Ranitidine,Pariet (reflux) Effexor XR 75mg;  Pulmicort/Airomir (asthma)
~URSO for PSC (or PBC) 500mg X 2 daily (LFTs back to NORMAL!!)
My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS"  worth it !!!

This is why the "hookworm therapy" treatment confuses me so much. They're nasty little critters and can make you really sick.

It would be a controlled and sterile amount that one would be given....also a remedy to expel them after a period of time before they take hold and cause damage.

Many things in small amounts can kick-start the immune system (think immunisation) to have a small reaction rather than a huge one.

Interesting theories.
