Lymphocytic colitis isn't a definitive diagnosis as it doesn't include the causation.

Lymphocytic colitis is an observation.

That observation is similar a doc to seeing a patient with stomach pain and "diagnosing" idiopathic gastritis. There's even a diagnostic code for insurance billing - 2017 ICD-10-CM Diagnosis Code K29.5.

Seems impressive. When you translate idiopathic gastritis into plain english it means "Yeah, it does seem you have a stomach problem, but I don't have a clue what's causing it or how to fix it."

You just got "diagnosed" rather than diagnosed.

Budesonide, a corticosteroid, treats the symptom and does not resolve the causation. Using it over time makes the underlying adrenal dysfunction associated with the problem worse.

Sorry to hear you're still having trouble with your gut.

Mark, I hear you. But it seems impossible to find the cause. (There are tests for food allergies, but you can't test every food or chemical). Also, once you get the colitis, it won't go away. It might go into remission, though. So, even if they know how I got it, it still won't help me.

I identified many foods, medications, and chemicals that aggravate my problem. If I stay away of them, I am almost OK. Still, it might flare up for no apparent reason.

Budesonide seems to have a positive long term efecct in many patients. I am hoping that after the treatment (an 8 week regiment) I will be OK for a few months. I am willing to do it no more than twice a year. I will also compare it's effectiveness to fasting. Maybe even do fasting right after the treatment.

The main think is, I have options, thus, hope.

Thank you for your opinion.

regiment: a permanent unit of an army typically commanded by a colonel and divided into several companies, squadrons, or batteries and often into two battalions.

regimen: a prescribed course of medical treatment, way of life, or diet for the promotion or restoration of health.

Moose, You probably get benefit from fasting due to not provoking inflammation via having avoided foods to which you are either allergic or intolerant - the distinction is important.

Consider signing up the for the six part email course I put together on chemical intolerance at vinamilife.com and you will understand that issue better.

There are diagnostics I can suggest for you that have probably not been considered.

Thank you, Paul. I am feeling more healthy already.

Mark, that was my thought too. Inflammation subsided during the fast making me feel better.
I will check out your link, for sure. Thanks.

Fasting and interment fasting has a lot of benefits. It helps to lower baseline insulin levels, which allows burning of fat. It also increases the production of HGH (human growth hormone) by like 1000% or some crazy amount like that.

The maximum amount of fat metabolizition peaks at about 11 hours into the fast and the max production of HGH is at about 18-21 hours into the fast. Huge benefits from working out in a fasted state, if you can get your body adapted to that. Then in you eating window don't eat a lot of sugar and empty carbs that's going to cause your insulin to go through the roof again.

LOL, Locker!

But, I did grow about 1" last two years. Could be due to yoga and climbing, too.
