i don't agree with you needing meds - if that is the list of your symptoms, you are doing well imo -
as far as the ph, i agree it sounds like what you'd expect -
when were you dx'd ?
I was dx'd about
2.5 years ago. My doc says he was confident I did not have Crohn's but instead said it was UC/Crohn's Colitis. I have been very fortunate so far not to have any of the really terrible side affects some have like the bleeding. I read these forums and feel awful for what some have to go through. I mostly just have pain, usually extremely urgency, and on occasion the mucus in stool (very rare).
It started with the urgency and that is when I got checked. I was going 4 times a day and just always felt like I had to go otherwise. about
2 years ago I had gall bladder complications and had it removed. That spiked it to going 8 times a day many times. By changing my diet I got that back down to about
4 times a day on average. I still eat "normal" foods because I just don't make enough to afford only all-natural/organic/etc foods.
