In Topic: Is There An App For That?

Thank you so much for the responses!!! I was just thinking how cool it would be to just be able to scan the upc to see if it was gluten free...... Maybe someday in the near future.....

Hi~~~~~
I am so sorry you are not feeling well...me too :( My Dr put me on Lomotil which is a stronger prescription dose of Imodium for the D and Phenergran pills for the nausea. They really help. You may want to request RX for these meds.
Hope you feel better soon!!

Ditto to response above. Seek medical assistance, NOW. Do not wait. The issue needs to be addressed by a professional, TODAY.

Thank you for your responses!!!

In Topic: Diagnosed With Celiac And Ulcerated Colitis Has Anyone Ever Been On Asacol?...

11 March 2011 - 08:45 PM

I have UC, IBS-C, Gluten and Dairy free, GERD, and Gastro-Paresis... lots of tummy issues. I have been on Asacol for 6 years and Remicade for 5 years. I have been dairy free forever and gluten free for 2 years. As your colitis improves with the Asacol, you will find that you feel so much better. Sometimes I can't tell where the colitis stops and the gluten issues begin. I find that when my colitis feels pretty good, then it is easier to deal with the gluten and dairy issues. When I eat safely, my colitis is good... like the rat running in a wheel.

Hope you feel better soon.

I also have BCBS and no, they don't cover dietitians. The asacol is expensive - 200.00/3 months at 12/day.

You might want to speak to the doctor about Remicade too. It gave me my life back. Asacol can only do so much. It is a pretty benign drug - you can take it if you are pregnant too. With the Remicade and Asacol and a gluten free diet, I live a pretty good life. Good luck!

Is the price of Asacol utilizing insurance? I think I need to get a second job just to afford my meds and gluten free foods!!! lol Are there any foods you need to stay away from due to the UC?

Just curious if all of you had bad diarrhea? I have microscopic colitis and my doc wants to put me on Entocort but I don't have D. Also, is it recommended that you have another test done to check your villi after going gluten free?


Since my surgeries, I have 8-10 bouts of D on a good day... bed and bathroom ridden on bad days
