Food Intolerances : not sure

PostPosted: Mon Mar 02, 2015 12:08 pm    Post subject: Antibiotic or gall bladder removal to blame? Reply with quote

Hi, I was diagnosed with CC about 10 years ago. I have been able to control the symptoms fairly well with Entecort. Two months ago I had an emergency gall bladder surgery. I didn't have any problems such as diarrhea which I had expected with my history of CC. Two weeks ago I experienced a sinus infection and was put on a 10 day round of antibiotics. A new drug I wasn't familiar with called Cefdinir. In about four days I started having severe diarrhea and I started with the Immodium Nd Entecort again. It has now been three days sine I finished the antibiotic and no relief yet . Could an antibiotic have this much effect? I am on my original dose of Entecort but not much help! Any advice? Thanks

Food Intolerances : Gluten, casein, soy, and avenin, (avenin is the prolamin in oats, which is equivalent to the gluten in wheat), beef, grapes, peanuts, cashews, almonds, (but nut butters seem OK except for peanuts), citric acid, chocolate, and agar.

Hi Maddie,

Yes it could. Antibiotics can trump just about any treatment. Diarrhea and nausea are common side effects for Cefdinir. Hopefully the effect will fade away after a few more days. If your symptoms should become worse with time, rather than better, it might be a good idea to ask your doctor to do a stool culture test to look for a C. diff infection, because when an antibiotic kills most of the bacteria in our intestines, that can leave us vulnerable to a C. diff infection.

Many of us take a probiotic for a couple of weeks beginning with the last antibiotic dose, to help prevent any pathogenic bacteria from taking advantage of all the open parking spaces in our gut that the antibiotic created by killing the bacteria that previously occupied those spaces.

If I were in that situation, I would give it a week and if it still persists, I would consult with my doctor.

I hope you'll be feeling better soon.


It is suspected that some of the hardest material known to science can be found in the skulls of GI specialists who insist that diet has nothing to do with the treatment of microscopic colitis.
