Lymphocytic Colitis
« on: April 13, 2017, 08:58:59 AM »
Has anyone heard of (or had) lymphocytic colitis? My mother was recently diagnosed, and I'd actually never heard of it before. Looking for some helpful resources. Thanks!

- it's an autoimmune disorder, a type of "microscopic colitis"
- it's related to Celiac, so many people have found that they absolutely have a gluten intolerance even if they don't test "positive" for Celiac
- lactose triggers symptoms for most people
- many people say that they also tested positive for parasites with some saliva test and that treating that helps the colitis
- most importantly, since it seems like various contributing factors *might* set it off (and because there's no definite known cause and no 100% certain cure), removing all offending parasites and cleaning up the diet 100% for 6 months gives the gut the best chance to recover completely (I am getting hard core about it now because I will not be one of those people I've read about online who suffer from this for 10 years!)
