Hi...flax, vitamin E, fish oils thins the blood and I don't take them based on that fact since I bruise like a maniac already (inherited thin skin).
Many take them, however. I'm not thoroughly convinced at this point.
Do make sure you EAT!! Make sure you take in protein at least with every meal.
You should, however, take a GOOD probiotic and get your doctor to prescribe rectal meds (rectal meds....rectal meds...repeat after me..lol)
Thank you for the kind words....not all agree with my perspective..just to warn you.
*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 !!!
