I don't know exactly what markers say IBD that might not also say something else.
What markers exactly are you talking about
and what are the readings?
If you feel worse with Remi....stop taking it.
Wy would he give it to you if you just have ibs?
Or am I reading it all wrong in that you're saying that the remi has helped the IBD?
Bacterial...hmmmm, can be checked out. We all have a balance of bad and good bacteria in our guts. If you have one that's not in check, a stool sample should help.
Are you taking probiotics? if yes, which ones?
