     What in the world is a Golimumbab Study, L-Glutamine and Pyridoxal alpha-ketogluterates?
      Is that to treat your ulcerative proctitis and if so, is it working?
 
      Do you get chiropractic treatment yourself?  I have been to the chiropractor about seven times now and I do think he is helping me.  He never made any claim to aiding treatment for UC but does work on the part of the spine which has connections to the digestive tract.  I have no idea whether it is a coincidence, meds are FINALLY kicking in, or a combination of both but whatever it is.....I will take any relief I can get! smilewinkgrin
 
Diagnosed with ulcerative proctitis in 1998 in hospital
Hospitalized (2nd time) in May 2008 for ten days.
Remission Nov 08 thru May of 09.
Slowly coming out of flare.  Meds: Colazal (6 per day), prednisone 10 mgm and tapering weekly, Cort enema nightly, Canasa in morning, Benicar 20 mg for BP, flaxseed oil 3 x a day, fishoil 2 x a day, probiotic 3 x a day, calcium with D 1x a day and multivitamin.
Doctor had me on 100 mgm of 6MP which drastically lowered my white count.  Now off the 6MP pending results of repeat white count. UGH.

Golimumab is another companies form of Remicade, except no mouse stuff. L-Glutamine for healing of intestines, and PAK is actually a form of B-6 to help in uptake of L-glutamine.

Golimumab worked best for me when I got it in IV. I don't have much faith in it, but I am getting free health care. My UC has been pretty quiet for past 9 months. Had few ups and downs but no huge flare-ups like last year. I take nothing else prescribed.

I have been getting adjusted for last 9 years or so. As long as I live I will continue to do that. It helps me function better overall, and keeps most other things working well. smilewinkgrin
Proctitis DX 1999, Pancolitis DX 2008
Golimumab study (100mg every 4 weeks)
L-Glutamine 5000 mg + 600 mg pyridoxal alpha-ketoglutarate

L-Glutamine helps heal intestines? Can you take it by itself and how much?
