In Topic: What Are Your Thoughts On Anti-Diarrhea Meds?

20 November 2011 - 05:25 PM

If you have any chance of having a bacterial overgrowth causing the diarrhea, DO NOT take anti-D meds. It keeps the bacteria in your intestines, which is counter productive.

PLEASE...if you even suspect bacterial overgrowth, go to a Gastroenterologist and beg for a stool sample to be sure. While you're at it, have him do a Celiac panel too. I was self treating for gluten intolerance, and turns out I had C Diff for 8 months! The only thing that kept it from becoming horrible were the probiotics I was taking. Being off gluten for so long, I feel amazingly better in many ways. But the doctor wants me to remain gluten free while healing. PS...I beat the C Diff with Flagyl, but still nervous about a recurrence. Keeping gluten free and will stay on probiotics, specifically Florastor and Culturell for the forseeable future. Good luck....but don't wait to see a doctor like I did!

In Topic: Thanksgiving Stuffing Recipe

Why not a rice stuffing. There are plenty of recipes around. It would probably be best NOT cooked in the turkey, but a separate casserole dish. I have found that using brown sushi rice holds up really well in soups and rice salads....kinda has a barley texture. Pre cook it first though.

In Topic: Not Celiac - So How Do I Know If I'm Still Gluten Sensitive?

I just posted on another thread....PLEASE be sure to have a stool test. I am now being treated for C Diff, a nasty bacterial infection in the intestines. I was on Cipro for three UTI's in a row, and it caused this bacterial overgrowth. Have you been on antibiotics in the last several months?

I'm not a doctor, but MY advise is to start on a good probiotic right away.

In Topic: My Only Symptom Is The Big D, So

PLEASE get a stool test, it may be something else. I made that mistake, and 6 months later did something about it and I'm currently being treated for C Diff, a "lovely" intestinal bacterial infection. I have to admit, I do feel much better having been gluten free all this time. Last week, my celiac panel came back negative, of course.
