Chronic intestinal pseudo-obstruction (CIP) diagnosis

Posted by beanglow @beanglow, May 22, 2019

I just returned from Mayo with a diagnosis of Cronic Intestinal Pseudo-Obstructive disorder. I'm wondering if there is anyone else out there with this condition that I could talk to about it?

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Digestive Health Support Group.

Hi Elaine, this is Lelia responding to your message posted on a different fructose malabsorption list than the one I started. I'm trying to keep it all together under one label. Anyway, thanks for getting back to me. My experience has been the dietitians don't know that much, especially in new areas like fructose malabsorption and CIP. Probably better to go with what the doctor says. Keep in touch. Did you have any good non-clinic experiences in Rochester?


Hi Lelia, We thought we were going to do a few things in Rochester when my tests were changed from May 8 to the 28th. We were going to go to the mansion and take the trolly tour but then everything was changed and more tests and consultations were scheduled and we didn't get to do anything else.
The dietician gave me a diet to follow for severe gastroparesis, which of course I don't have. There was a diet that I saw on a CIP website that I'm going to check into, but otherwise, it's pretty much been hit and miss. The only other thing the doctor said was to stay away from artificial sweeteners. Thanks for your response to my message. I don't think there are many people out there who are familiar with CIP. Elaine


Does anyone know of medication for Chronic Intestinal Pseudo-Obstruction?
