Yeah, I recently read that there will be a Third Annual Conference on Women's Issues in Gastroenterology held in Philadelphia PA April 4-6. The agenda is available online, listing participants & looks pretty impressive-- even a section on sedation issues in endoscopy! Glad to know they have us in mind ... / Old Hat (nearly 30 yrs with left-sided UC ... [etc.])

Ya, the CCFC has an atricle about girls being more affected by IBD over boys.

My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it!  LOL  :)

Probably more hormone/cortisol related stuff. Besides...women have a tendency to be more emotionally related to situations/stress than men.

Let's not even add periods into the mix.

*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 !!!
