Wed, Apr 24 6:58am · Collagenous Gastritis – Searching for Answers in Gastroenterology & GI Surgery

I have an 18 yr old with collagenous gastritis. Sucrulfate and prednisone did not help him. He is on the GAPS diet which has helped a lot. You still have to customize based on your own reactions. We also work with a GAPS practitioner via skype.

Totally agree on nutrition. My teenager has collagenous gastritis. We are now doing the GAPS diet/protocol. That is after seeing many specialists across the country and trying meds. GAPS is the only thing that is working for us. However, you have to customize based on the individual. If you don't customize, you don't see improvement. That is the tricky part of the nutrition route. Very slow improvement but finally moving in the right direction.

They gave him carafate and steroids but neither helped. Steroids were terrible.

GAPS is second generation SCD. We work with a GAPS practitioner to customize for specific issues. That makes a world of difference. Not cheap to work with practitioner but worth it.

Collagen band in the stomach. We went all over the country visiting specialists. My son couldn't gain weight and was exhausted all of the time. We are now doing the GAPS diet protocol. Only thing that has helped. Very slow improvement. Like you mentioned, no preservatives, no additives. Not an easy protocol but I'm a believer.

I have read that collagenous collitis often is found in adults. A lot of younger people have collagenous gastritis which my teenager has. Nutrition protocol has been the only thing to help. It cause low mineral absorption and anemia.

I have a 17 year old that was diagnosed over two years ago. We also went to several doctors. There is no one protocol that works. The only thing we are having success with is nutrition. My son is on the GAPS diet. It is similar to SCD which some Mayo Clinic doctors recommend for Crohn's patients. GAPS is like second generation SCD. It is very slow healing and our practitioner says it will take about two years. Feel free to reach out privately.
