Whose Tried Cholestyramine- Questran Powder?

Recommended Posts

Hi Judyin Philly-

I just saw your post today -- kind of new to this site. Dr. Habba is my gastoenterologist -- my office is 4 blocks from his. Had been on Cholestyramine & it didn't help. First tried the gluten-free diet for 6 months -- still had very bad diarrhea - I'm also a colon CA survivor. Now also diagnosed with Habba Syndrome :( :( :( I'. not having fun! Am now taking 1250 mgm of Wechol 30 minutes before meals & it's working (started 2 weeks ago). Hope that's helpful. good luck :rolleyes:

Hi

I'm so thrilled to see your post.

So he's your dr............you have Habba syndrome but the 'c' powder didn't help you?

So did Dr Habba put you on this Wechol...........?

how does it work differently than the powder?

Did he say you have 'bile salt direaha'?

I still don't quite get why this works other than the explination on his web site where we produce too much bile salt from the gallbladder ........is that correct?

i know so many people who have their gallbladder out get this afterwards.

do you still have yours?

I still have mine.

Sorry about the colon CA. Are you still eating gluten-free or not?

I know lots of questions..........but gosh, can't believe that there is someone on c.com who actually goes to him. How did you find him by the way?

Do you live in NJ?

I really can't say whether it helped or not .... I'm not on it anymore and I'm not sure if it helped.

Yeah, tapeworm, yuck! I don't know if it's all gone, or not!! I'm going to take the Humaworm again .... you're supposed to wait 90 days between treatments. I figure it's a good idea to be sure. Their website says that bad infections may need more than one treatment .... I don't know if they consider a tapeworm to be a bad infection, but I DO!!!

Carla: I hope I am not being too forward but how/where did the tapeworm come from? I didn't know that it could happen in USA....guess I am uninformed...please forgive me if I am too forward with my question....
