Collagenous colitis - Collagenous gastritis

Does anyone know how one may acquire CG. This is one of the diagnoses that has been brought up to me as a reason for my loose stools (twelve weeks since finishing a round of Clindimycin). CDiff has tested negative twice. My next option is a colonoscopy. This is all frightening. Was healthy until this happened.

So sorry to read what you’re going through. My husband was just diagnosed with CG. He also has microscopic collagenous colitis. Which is causing the diarrhea, and weight loss his dr prescribed lomtil to control the runs, and budesonide for the colon he takes sucralffate for CG. It’s all so overwhelming. Get the tests done. Once you know you can start a management program. He also changed his diet, that really helps

I too have CG, diagnosed 3 years ago. I feel your pain. I take steroids which seems to keep it somewhat under control. Have your doctors prescribed steroids at all? It took me about a month to 6 weeks before I started feeling a bit better.
