Thanks for the reply. i was shocked after 8 months of this to suddenly have no problem . It made me wonder of I was misdiagnosed. The reason he was unsure of which it was is that he said chrones is ussally also in the small intestine but that was the one place the biopsy was fine but he said that did not rule out chrones. He said it all really falls under the umbrella of IBD so he would just start treatment with asocol to try to avoid the steroids if possible. Yes, they did the blood tests and sample tests which were fine thats why he decided on the colonoscopy because he counld t find an y reason for my problems. So you think this sounds like UC to you ? Im new to all this and I dont really know.
I figure the astaxanthin seems to be good for you on so many levels I cant go wrong taking it . if its helps with this thats a plus. I actually started it because if the other benifits though.
I wonder why this started at my age ( 48) never had any issues before. And sometimes it seems worse on days I am at home and not working I dont know why or if thats my imagination.
