golly,do I have a story to tell you !!! I'm Ms.Paula,62,lupus since 1990.
I had my gullbladder out back in 1969. I have battled diarrhea ever since.
I have lived on and off pills,trying to either,slow,halt,stop,or just try to lock it up !! I found the foods,drinks,treats and meds.to avoid.
now,I'm going to jump ahead so this won't take so long.
after I got lupus,the diarrhea got really bad. it took time to find meds.
that wouldn't mess me up. one med. is plaqunil, it has side effects,one is diarrhea,I can only take one aday. some of the nsaids will cause it. there are alot more, but if you ask your doctors which ones have that effect,you can avoid them.
now,this is my daily; I take 1 lomotil, 1 hyocyamine [hyomax-sl0.125mg] nothing else for about an hour. then, all my pills [including another hyocyamine] with some boiled egg whites,2 oz. meat,
or a grill cheese sandwich, then if I get hungry before lunch, 1 cup yogart or fruit. noon; the next cup of pills; there is another lomotil & hyocyamine
wait, then eat. of course your menu will be larger then mine,I do dialysis
4 times aday. when I get to dinner time; 1 hyocyamine + all my other pills.
here is rest of the secret;
L-glutamine-500mg 1 cap. 4 times aday
phoslo-667mg. 5 caps. per day, like; 2 2 1 or 2 1 2 just get 5 down
zocor 20mg. 1 tab. at bedtime
acidophilus 2 gel tabs.per day
and here is the one for a diarrhea attack;phehergan 25mg 1 every
4 hours,as needed. this one puts me to sleep,thats great,you sleep
while the bowels and colon settles down & you get rest.
keep in mind I take over 40 pills aday,not coounting the epogen shots & pain pills.
as time goes by we can go through my whole pill-pile !!
you need to eat boiled,steamed,or baked. try popcycles,gratorade,jello,
sugarless puddings. get some good bacteria in your system.be sure to
consume plenty of liquids [no coffee,cokes,etc.]
try to limit the sugars,I use sweet & low or slenda.
this will get you going in the "stop" direction.
you have anymore questions, I'm here.
diarrhea is better hummed, then shouted !!!
love to talk,love to listen,so we share.
