OH wow really - weight gain ! I want that side effect !!!

So glad you have an upcoming GI visit, I remain hopeful they will have something they can have you try until your diet changes kick in. I know it's so easy to give up with this MC, everything takes a long time to heal but lets keep fighting and helping each other get through it !

I will be thinking positive healing thoughts and sending them out to you ! big big hug

Hugs

My constipation came to at least a brief end this morning. I had taken a Colace two nights ago and this morning had two large, normals! Because I can hear and feel action in my gut, I wasn't sure I had a motility problem. Colace (docusate sodium) increases the amount of water in the gut making stools easier to pass. In spite of ample water intake, maybe I have a problem reabsorbing the water in the large intestine. Who knows? I don't want to take it on a daily basis and become dependent on it. However, if i can use it a couple of times a week, I'll give that a try. And, of course, I could land in the world of D again. That's MC!

Tex and Rebecca, thanks for your advice about the magnesium. I have cut way back.

Rebecca, it sounds like you have a fantastic GI doc. I envision you again weighing 130 lbs. Power of positive thinking.

Susan

Susan that must be some relief to have had 2 normals, I am jealous. talk I looked up what colace is as I am thinking I should try it after hearing about your success.
I am having the same issue as you ( and I like the way you worded it Susan ) "hear and feel action in my gut" I have a lot of activity in my intestines and its very uncomfortable.
Is there anything more natural than colace or is that considered a good option for MC with C ? I need to pull Tex's book out and re read this issue.
Thank You Susan for having thoughts of that 130 pounds for me, I believe in the power of positive thinking !!

I am happy you are fine tuning your mag intake Susan, I guess we can get too much of a good thing ! I am doing what Gabes shared with me a few months ago and that is the foot baths in epsom salts and the mag spray. I will look into the lotion today as that darn oil really stings on my lupus sores.

I am happy to say I have ordered the Enterolab A1 +C1 panel this morning. I hope this will shed some light on any food sensitivities I am having.

surrender

Can someone tell me again where you like to see Vit D levels ? Mine is currently at 37. Thank You in advance to whom ever answers this for me !

Hi Rebecca,

Here's the Vitamin D Council's position statement for professionals, on Vitamin D blood levels:

https://www.vitamindcouncil.org/for-health-profe...and-sun-exposure/

IOW, they recommend 40–80 ng/ml (100-200 nmol/l), so you are very close. Good for you.

And of course you're very welcome.

Tex

Tex I just had to pop in and say thanks for that great link ! I am close to the proper level of D, I will up it a bit, I have drops and now I have the new patches Erica so kindly told me about.

My in-take of D, B's & mag is helping so much. I know I would be much worse off.
Thank you for such great support everyone !
Very Happy
