Jul 3, 2016 · Mesenteric Panniculitis or Sclerosing Mesenteritis in Digestive Health

I did find two doctors in Los Angeles who list having experience but I’m concerned that they don’t really, I of course will call. Also I have a rheumologist I really like ( I test high for RA, but no rheumatoid so I check in with him once a year) I will see if he has knowledge of this.

Thank you Mjg1160! I think diet will make a difference, thank you for the recommendation. Already I have him eating all organic. He does have a reaction to some bread products (he breaks out in hives) and milk products. I read the right diet can help with inflammation. Hopefully I can get him to agree.

Colleen, once we get the blood work back we will know more. I want my husband tested for allergies. Then I plan on asking his primary doctor if he has any experience with this?I will ask if this can be an infection in the area ( I read that is sometimes the case)? I plan on asking if a biopsy is recommended (I would feel better if it was biopsied)? I plan on asking if he has a colleague who is a rheumatologist that has knowledge or specializes in this? I plan on asking the rheumatologist if there is a holistic approach to this, before taking steroids since he is experiencing no pain? Will tumeric help rather then a steroid? Also is this a progressive disease that leads to major problems later, or is it a disease that is in and out of remission?

Does anyone in Los Angeles know of a doctor that specializes in this? My husband, 49, had a CT scan and MP was found. It was indicated as 8 cm in size. Also diverticulitis was found. No other tumors or problems. He is in zero pain, just some occasional bloating based on what he eats. We haven’t seen his general practioner yet about the results but I want to plan ahead. Also, does anyone think the area should be biopsied or can this cause more problems?
