There are a few abbreviated terms we use here on the Uc forum that I thought I would put a post up in case no one knows what they are but don't want to feel silly for asking :-)   However, please do not hesitate to ask any sort of question if you are unclear to what it means.  You can't learn if you don't ask right??
 
NSAID'S = nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as Advil, Aleve, Naproxen, Motrin etc.
 
5-ASA'S = these are medications such as Asacol, Colazal, Rowasa enemas and Canasa suppositories
 
CD = Crohns Disease
 
UC = Ulcerative Colitis (I really hope we all know what THIS means tongue )
 
BUMP = we use this term to put a thread back to the top of the page for more responses and views
 
D = diarrhea
 
C = constipation
 
OT = (off topic) this is an off the topic of UC type post
 
DD, DH, DW, DS = dear or darling daughter, husband, wife, son
 
MIL or FIL = Mother or Father-in-law
 
If you have any more that I didn't cover, please feel free to post it!

What's a GI?

The way it's normally written it sounds like it's the same as gastroenterologist but when my doctors mention the GI they mean the gastrointestinal tract.

GI is the same as a gastroenterologist or it can be referred to as the GI tract. But on here it mostly means the doctor.

BTW=by the way...I use this one from time to time and am surprised at how many ask what I'm referring too, I thought it was as universal as FYI.

IMO = In my opinion
IMHO = In my honest opinion
 
 
Dx:  2006
 
Meds:  None so far. Garlic works to ease flares. My GI laughed when I told him and said it was just coincidence.
 
Diet:  Regular fresh garlic, Biobest yogurt daily, Omega 3 supplements, very limited junk food, carbs and processed food, low fat diet.  Lots of fresh fruit and veggies (limited potatoes). 
 
Added: tumeric and probiotics.

It sort of is a new language. The rough part is when you start writing a letter (yes an actual hand written letter!) to someone and you find yourself adding in the "LOL"! That's when some of us know we need help! :)

Or how about when someone says something funny to you and instead of actually laughing you say "LOL"...I do that to my hubby and he hates it (which is why I continue doing it now).
