My doc did a broad spectrum blood test last week to test all my vitamins and minerals to see if they reach the cell level and they said my red blood cells didn't grow and want me to come back in and retest. Also, he saw things that showed up that concerned him with my immune system, which he already knows I have UC. I had an appt for a week out and they called me back and said they wanted to see me right away, tomorrow at 8:20am they had a cancellation. I don't believe they had a cancellation, I believe they wanted to get me in asap. I'm a little worried, but I'm glad they are being proactive in my health.
Just wanted to share.
 
I'm on day 2 and half of Flagly and no improvement really :(

Very mild left sided (could have fooled me with the "mild")  UC. Started LDN ON 1/25/09, stopped LDN on 5/1/09 didn't seem to help. Supplements: Probiotics, Cipro antibiotics 4/29 for 8 days seemed to help a little. Bad diarreah in the mornings about a hour of "dumping" no meds at this time for UC. I take Bentyl as needed, lomotil as well.

Good News, they gave me a IV of vitamins and minerals and said I should continue them for up to 12 weeks going once a week. There is E COLI still in my stool that is resistant to all my antibiotics that I have been taking. So they suggested Grape Fruit Seed Extract and Cypric Acid for two weeks then S****ox to kill the yeast which he said Diflucan would not get. I will let you know how I'm doing once the IV kicks in and I take the other supplements. He had me freaked out for no reason when they said they couldn't grow my red blood cells, he said it's probably due to being anemic, which I'm working on that.
 
Thank you all for being there for me, I really appreciate it from the bottom of my heart!
 
Hugs,
 
Linda

That is great news. Let me know how the grapefruit seed works. I was thinking about giving it a try but I've tried so many weird herbal things I am feeling like nothing will ever help me.
