Hello again everyone
I am still fighting this flare-up I'm in. I am not having as many loose stools or watery diarhea, but nothing formed yet. Most of the day I am cramped and uncomfortable, but I have asked my doctor if I could hold off on the pred to see if I can beat this on my own first. My biggest problem now is, I am starting to lose weight again. It is a bigger concern than before because I couldn't seem to put the weight back on from my initial flare.
My questions are- how can I gain the weight back when it's so hard to eat the proper amount of calories when you're flaring and when you're not, most high calorie foods are triggers.
What do you guys do to put weight back on. I have thought of going to see a nutritionist.
Also, if I'm not having diahrea, but still some other symptoms, how long before I should sit down with my doctor. I am afraid to go to the next step.
Thanks for your inputs...they help me out a lot. I really need to put some weight back on...that's my #1 priority. (and getting out of this flare of course)
