After 20 Weeks on the Specific Carb Diet

  • Have been off prednisone, and ALL drugs, for about a month now. After a few weeks of slightly elevated sedimentation rates, I am back in normal range. Note that I have NOT had Crohn’s symptoms, despite the slightly elevated ESR levels- no stomach cramps, no pain, no urgency, and 1-2 BMs a day. Things have been extremely manageable and I feel like I am controlling this disease.
  • Have had little stress this week, as I took a week off before starting my new job.
  • I have been doing yoga EVERY DAY this week and it has been amazing. I truly, truly believe it’s assisting my digestion.

Something to note is that my MCHC level is slightly below the normal range, at 31.8 (normal is 32-35). This shows slight anemia. MCHC has not been an issue prior to this week, and I did eat more fish than chicken this week, which could have played a factor. I will continue to monitor my MCHC levels in subsequent weeks- but it’s nothing I’m too concerned about right now, as I have had normal levels for each week prior to this one.

    Looks like you do well… (hard to say, but still…) do not take these doctors too much to heart.

    You see that your scd improves it for you, so why worry about what othrs say?
    Besides, there is probably a hell lot ofr you to learn on which foods and how etc. there a lots of subtelties, I guess.

    Good luck!
