Hi Deleuze..haven't seen you for a while. I can't remember where exactly is your UC...throughout or limited?
Before you were put on pred for the second time...what meds were you using..exactly?
You're not going to like my suggestion...stop the fish oil. Supplement with Calcium/Magnesium with D....GNC has them for a good price...I take 4 daily.
What is your diet like?
You could consider to take a stool bulker fibre supplement....I just found out about
Prodiem capsules and will be purchasing them tomorrow. There are definitely other stool bulkers out there..Metamucil (psyllium) is the most popular.
Are you ingesting any/a lot of artificial sweeteners?
Hang tough....I think with some changes you might see some improvement if some symptoms aren't UC related. It's difficult to differentiate sometimes.
What other supplements are you taking?
*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 !!!
