For me, I think:

- GI infections (2x) acquired in Asia,
- Genetic factor: (my father has totally the same symptoms - started 35 years ago - , but he is undiagnosed).
- Autoimmun origin? (I am allergic to pollens and dust, I have seborrheic dermatitis around my nose).

I've never used ppi-s or any related medicines except NSAIDs rarely (for 2-3 days in every year).
Almost zero use of antibiotics before my symptoms started.
Male. | Age of onset: 31. | Diagnosis of collagenous colitis at the age of 33. (A few days ago.) | Symptoms: mild morning diarrhea or loose stool once a day. Severe watery diarrhea (3-4 times after eating triggering food) once or twice in a month.

I think for me it was a combination of the undiagnosed gluten problem, excessive antibiotics, and life long stress starting with ongoing childhood trauma.
I also wonder if 2 bouts of food poisoning pre-disposed me to LC....

the allergies to pollen and dust are linked to magnesium and B6 deficiencies.

(of note allergies and mast cells are linked to MC)
I have resolved life long (that were at times chronic) allergy and asthma issues once I fixed magnesium and B6 deficiencies, stuck with low inflammation eating plan and healed my gut!
