My 5 year old son was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis in April 2010.
He was starting to get better and was in Remission for 3 months with the use of several harmful drugs such as Asacal, Prednisone, Imuran, and now Remicade Infusion. Unfortunately as of last Thursday, he had a bad relapse with fever, 10 to 15 diarrhea bowel movements with lots of blood. He is taking an iron supplement 2x’s a day to help with this. His current Ped. GI. is pushing surgery. She does not believe that SCD can help with his diagnosis. I disagree! He has been on the diet with the probiotic home-made yogurt now for 5 days and is starting to show some progress as of today.
I would love to hear from other Moms & Dads who have young children suffering from the same thing, are succeeding with the SCD and are facing the possibility of surgery. Thanks so much, worried Mom with 5 year old son with UC.
