Okay, I just read the post about breastmilk and got to thinking...
I was not a breastfed baby as I was too sick as an infant to breastfeed. However, my GI has explained to me that UC has a lot to do with your immune system. When I was hours old I was almost flown to another hospital to have a complete blood change out as my body had turned on itself and I was dying. Basically, it was explained to my mom that my immune system developed too fast or rather before I was born. So, could this have been a precursor to my problems now? I have been plagued with weird illnesses all my life, most that are unheard of in my family. Could all this somehow be related. When I mention these things to my doctors they look at me like I'm crazy! =) I hope you are not reading this and thinking, "OMG, she is nuts, poor girl!"
Any imput is appreciated.
