The last couple of weeks I have had weekness in my legs to the point of trouble walking, headaches, extreme exhaustion. I have a appointment with my family Doc in the a.m. After all my research it appears people with intestinal disorders are @ higher risk. I've been on the SCD diet and not really eating Carbs or Sugar. I'm wondering if my glucose levels are messed up due to the UC and SCD diet? Anyone else dealt with this?
Dx'D in 1990. Remission 1991 - 1/2005
Fish Oil, Probiotics, Lialda, Caprylic acid
watch my sugar and carb intake
Both flares were in extremely stressful times in my life
Colonoscopy 10/2005 80% of Colon diseased, or as I like to say "Intestinely challenged"

Are you taking in enough protein from meats, are you getting B vitamins (many are in grains, so nixing some carbs could eliminate some B's).

Get the doc to check that for sure...also are you taking calcium with vitamin D?

Get the doc to do the gammit of tests and for thyroid as well.

Let us know the outcome of the appointment.

*Heather*Status:mini flare June 23* 6asacol daily+ Salofalk (tapered every 3rd night)
~diagnosed January 1989 UC (proctosigmoiditis)
~5ASA: Asacol + Salofalk enemas (increase for flares tapered to maintenance)
~Bentylol (dicyclomine) 20mg as needed
~Probiotic 2 (Natural Factors Protec) + 1 (Primadophilus Reuteri) at bedtime

My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS"  worth it !!!
