yes, UC throughout the colon is U. pancolitis or U. universal colitis.
I've never had DanActive..if it doesn't bother your stomach since it's a milk product..should be fine. But, you've just mentioned gas...could be that. I get lots of gas from yogurt. Some probiotics can cause gas as well..I think it's from replenishing the good bacteria..but I'd much rather take them via pills than yogurt. One once in a while for a treat, but daily..no can do for me.
How many a day can you drink of them? I don't think it's quite enough..you could add another type of probiotic geared toward UC.
I hope the doctor will give you the 5ASA retention enemas such as Rowasa or if you're not in the US..Salofalk...rather than suppositories.
It's good you don't have hemmies. I just have a slight inflammation of external ones...bothersome.
Oh, you could ask the doc for a script
for Dicyclomine...just 10mg...it's an antispasmodic that will also help with the spasming in the rectum.
Let me know what the doc says about
*Heather*Status: mini flare Dec 28... tapered to every 4th night
~diagnosed January 1989 UC (proctosigmoiditis)
~5ASA: Asacol (6 daily) + Salofalk enemas (increase for flares tapered to maintenance)
~Bentylol (dicyclomine) 20mg as needed
~Probiotic 3(Natural Factors Protec) bedtime + 1 (Primadophilus Reuteri) occasionally
~multi-digestive enzymes as needed ....zymactive 3 - 5x 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 !!!
