Old Hat....Awesome info..thanks for posting the site! I prefer hard copies as well, so printed it, but haven't had time to read all of it yet. Makes sense so far....at my last appointment, my doc mentioned new focus/talk about subtypes and gearing treatment.
In the archives, the one titled "Patient Adherence in Inflammatory Bowel Disease" is equally compelling...worth a read for all UCers.
*Heather*Status:mini flare June 23* 6asacol daily+ Salofalk (tapered every 4th 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
~Natural Factors Multi Digestive Enzymes with supper
~Ranitidine,Pariet (reflux) Effexor XR 75mg; Pulmicort/Airomir (asthma)
~URSO for PSC (or PBC) 500mg X 2 daily (LFTs back to NORMAL!!)
My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
