I have posted so much I really don't know what old mike would say.
As far as diet I can tell you a few things.
If you eat too much protein some of it will get to the colon, probably not a good thing.
about 10s% of calories from carbs are absorbed in the colon.
If you go on a lowered protein diet, the pancreas will decrease its output of protease.
If you eat a lot of high meat or is it fat, cant quite remember you will have more taurine conjugated bile,
seems to upregulate SRB's.
A lot of what is going on is due to ROS and antioxidant depletion,inability to clear biofilms,perhaps Vitamin D status.
Perhaps over fortification, especially with iron, perhaps B6,possible copper water pipes, if there is high
copper in drinking water, acts like excess iron in the fenton reaction.
Lest we forget all the veggie oils, which contain lots of vitamin E, too much of which can interfere with our
The question still remains why us and not them.
Genetics/epigenetics,stress,poor choice of parents.
As far as FMT, the last study on crohns I posted, indicated that when the donor was too close in composition to the
sick person no remission was achieved. Still trying to figure that one out, it might be some sort of key to what
is going on. Then again it might not just be the bacteria but also the virom.
Vitamin D status, too many showers and washing it off.
I could go on for pages, but where does it all end.
For now will stick with the radical induction theory degrading basement membranes,letting in
normal colonic bacteria through the mucus barrier,causing the immune attack and the cascade of destruction.
Which over time creates the dysbiosis in UC.
one of the latest on diet
