Another question to ask is whether doctors are accurate with their diagnoses. I get the impression that
1.) if you have a digestive disorder they automatically declare gastritis or IBS.
2.) But if a scope shows inflammation of the colon then it is Ulcerative Colitis.
3.) But if the colon has inflammation in patches, then it must be crohn's colitis.
4.) But if the small intestine is affected then it must be Crohn's.
In other words I do not believe that doctors are infallible. I asked my GI if I had UC or Crohn's colitis. He said he wasn't sure but it doesn't matter since the same meds are used for both.
God knows how many with simple gluten intolerance (which cannot be detected thru testing), have been diagnosed with IBD, taking toxic drugs when all they needed to do is avoid wheat. So I am sure that this forum can provide you with some valuable insights.
