I'm on a weekly IV of vitamins and minerals and noticed an improvement in my hair and nail, less cramping in the gut but still same about of poo and still blood. I started today, a Peptid Replacement therapy that was originally started at Oxford University in Europe. They drew my blood about 3 months ago and shipped it off to see if I would be a canadiate and I was. It's drug free program and that idea behind the therapy is to train my body to make its own peptids again and make my mucusa healthy in my bowel. The report came back and reported I didn't have "typical UC" that I had leisons or eruptions in my colon.
 
My last stool test showed E COLI thats resistant to antibiotics so I'm on caprilic acid and also about to begin Sporonox (rx) for yeast in the gut. With a combo of all this my doc said within a month I should be feeling pretty good. Oh, I have to follow my avoidance diet which is no beef, milk, rice, yeast, tomato and onion. Usually rice is pretty safe for most if they can't have yeast, (I'm not allergic to gluten or wheat it was yeast this whole time) but I can't do rice so instead I order spelt bread. I need to follow it for 4 weeks straight and trust me I've fallen off the wagon many times.
Doc said the first initial treatment will determine how the rest will go, if there's no improvement by the 3rd shot (every 3 weeks @ $270 a shot) then we stop and re-evaluate.
I will keep you posted.
By the way I really like my doc from Flint, Michigan, he's very caring and thorough!
Talk to you soon and praying for all of us to be in better, stronger health!

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.

Anna G, The correct spelling of the word is "peptide" so I imagine that's why you couldn't find anything.

Diagnosed with pancolitis on 1/30/09
