Jul 18, 2018 · Mesenteric Panniculitis or Sclerosing Mesenteritis in Digestive Health

Hello Bill, glad to have you as part of the group. Your gastroenterologist in my opinion really did you a favor by referring you to a research hospital maybe they can find a way to help you. Then you can tell us all what they did for you because we are all hoping for a cure or at least a treatment. I suggest that you watch your diet. There are some foods that I'll probably never eat again. They send me on a sickness cycle that's horrific. So watch your diet and good luck at your appt. Viv

@pcfromfm I am amazed at your “normal”! I struggle with this issue on a daily basis. I’ve been prescribed several really harsh medications to try and combat this problem. But I look at it as just another part of MP that I must deal with in order to feel better. So lucky you!

@hopeful33250 Hi Teresa I’ve also eliminated caffeine from my diet. Avoiding these foods from my diet is very disheartening sometimes but definitely worth it in the long run! Feeling better and being able to function with some sense of normalcy makes it all worthwhile!

@hopeful33250 Hi Teresa, I’ve changed my diet and my eating habits. The first thing I learned is to only eat small amounts. Too much food causes bloating and pain. I have also eliminated cooking or eating spicey foods. I cook with Mrs Dash and that seems to work for me. No onions or garlic. I’ve also found I can eat a can of soup with no problems. I also avoid beef and fast food. No cheese or dairy. It has definitely taken some adjustments especially during holidays. I’ve found if I’m very careful about the choices I make I do pretty good. Finally regularity is a must for me. Two days missed I start feeling those symptoms!

Hello fernandoparce, I have been following your post for the past two weeks or so and I am so sorry to hear that you are having such a hard time with this disease. I was diagnosed with MP in April 2016. It’s definitely no picnic to deal with. I tried Prednisone 20mg it made me so sick that I just couldn’t take it anymore. Things have gotten better because of a serious change in my diet. If I eat right I feel better. I too have loss quite a bit of weight so I understand your concern. Just wanted to let you know that you are not alone! Hopefully you feel better soon!
