This is Dr. David
you need more testing and treatments.
you should be tested for celiac spruce disorder. you could be allergic to glutten wheat protein and you might have to eliminate glutten from your diet to help.
you should talk to your doctor about trying diphoxylate/atropine (Lomotil)
and cholestyramine to help control your diarrhea.
budesonide steroid can also help calm down the bowels as well.
I have been told I do not have Celiac .
that is good.
have you tried Lomotil or chlestyramine to help with diarrhea?
I have been told I do not have Celiac I have taken budesonide works all the time you take it but after stopping soon comes back
I'm glad the budesonide works.
it sounds like you have to go back to taking it all the time.
talk to your doctor about Lomotil or chlestyramine to see if these would help as well.
I know want to not have to take medications.
but with your condition, to control your diarrhea, it sounds like you have to take something
you can't just manage with diet alone.
does this make sense?
if Budesonide is a steroid surely you cannot take this all the time
it acts like a steroid in your GI system.
it is not a typical steroid.
it can be taken for a long period of time.
it inhibits inflammatory cytokines in your bowel.
do you have any other questions ?
no thank you I will go back to my Doctor again thank you
