For those of you with kids, I know some of you have kids with UC, I thought this would be helpful -
Just came across this new site by a well-known Dr. (and medical genetics researcher). I saw this nifty page on his vitamins section. It's Probiotics for Kids (I guess adults can take 'em too). He's also got Culturelle for Kids.
I also know this Dr., I've worked in a summer program he founded for children with chronic, lifelong and often rare illnesses.
Dx: Dec. 2006 with UC
F, 23, NYC
Thank G-d - Prednisone then 6MP, Rowasa and Asacol brought remission
Now Asacol 4tabs 2x a day.
Reduced to 2tabs 2x a day. Soon had a very mild flare. Upped to 6 tabs 2x a day. Rowasa enemas nightly. Soon replacing that with Cortifoam (generic). Dr. says it's like shooting a mouse with an elephant gun....
