Aug 28, 2012 · Does anyone have these symptoms along with IBS? in Digestive Health

Thanks again to read your post, it is so positive to communicate with others that are having some unsolved health issues. When I first saw your site I really didn’t consider how they were somewhat related. I am so thankful for this method of “sharing and encouraging” in this struggle. I have wanted to start a sharing site like this for the past 3 months and didn’t get it done. I am so glad that I found this site last week. I was so tired I just didn’t even turn on the computer until now.
As I understand you are just starting gluten free. I hope your day is going better.

Bettyann thanks for your reply and information. I just had an appointment this afternoon with a Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine and I learned a ton of things about our immune system. She is suggesting going with gluten free and use milk alternatives for two weeks. It is a lot of things to think through and plan accordingly. I appreciate the info that you have given. My real name is Betty, I wasn’t sure if I wanted to add that when I signed up. Hope your body is doing better with wheat free. More will follow later. Thanks ssssssssoooooo much!

Aug 27, 2012 · Does anyone have these symptoms along with IBS? in Digestive Health

I really do not know much about IBS, but I am learning a wealth of information about our colon and the problems that can occur after taking antibiotics. Because of an illness in April that required some stiff antibiotics I acquired c diff and it has returned now 5 times. I am interested in ways to help the body get the “good bacteria” back in the colon. A friend of our family had c diff and the doctor suggested drinking Kefir milk. It is like a smoothie and contains 10 great bacteria our colon needs. I was using Kefir and I did not have the struggle and pain from the other infections. I wonder if Kefir has helped. This is a great supplement for me and is helping me hold my weight at a safe place. This might be something that may help you. It is worth a try. It is kinda hard to find in stores. They place it near the Activa/cottage cheese in some stores. The best source is Aldi’s for $2.79 a qt, Other stores it is priced at over $4 . Best wishes as you continue to find healing and hope.

Now if someone will help me find help and hope in my c diff battle.

I am reading this almost a month later. I trust you got some relief. I am under treatment for my 5th round of c diff. The new meds will arrive at Walmart 24 hours after the script was sent to Walmart, The drug is new, Diff ic id, and the cost is over 3,000 dollars for 10 days. I would like to go to Mayo but I don’t think Medicare will cover it. Does anyone have any good suggestions. in late In late April I was in the hospital with influenza A and mid May I started this journey with C Diff. Pls respond to let me know how you are.
