I have started to take caprylic acid as i have a white type of covering on my tongue. Could this covering be linked to my UC, either as a sign of a fungal problem or as a sign that it is a Fungal problem that caused my UC?
 
Will caprylic acid help with this problem? How much caprylic acid should i be taking each day?
 
I am currently on remicade, azathioprine and asacol.
 
Many thanks

i can't remember how many mgs i took when i tried it, but i think i followed what the bottle said. i know some other folks will respond to this and help out.

just wanted to throw in my 2 cents and tell you to please keep a close eye on how you are feeling. i did feel the normal die off reaction and had a "sluggish bowel" for a few days, but at the end of taking it for 2 weeks, i started seeing blood and i was previously feeling pretty good.
not everything is "harmless" for everyone. listen to your body!

it's possible that i had a white coating on my tongue, but i often do since the onset of UC. a white coating can be many things but very well could be fungus related. oral thrush can make a white coating but often has sores also...

take care!

UC (probably pancolitis, but no c-scope yet), diagnosed June 2006, started having major symptoms sometime in January 2006, about 3 months after childbirth. 2nd flare (minor) may 2007 after taking caprylic acid for 2 weeks.
-tried SCD for 4 weeks with no improvement...
-Asacol since 7/26/06
-Prednisone 8/28/06-2/28/07. and again may '07, 8 week course.
-probiotics, ground psyllium husk, fish oil, CalMag, multivitamin

may you live all the days of your life.

Yeah the white tongue bit came on as my UC developed. Still have never gotten a satisfactory explanation on that one.
Diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis 6/2006 at age 26 after sudden E.R. visit
~Pancolitis (Mild to Moderate)
 ~I had Mono in 2000

In remission about 2-3 months after E.R. but not back to normal!
