Prometheus Test

Elaine writes:
Yes, we have files on the Prometheus Test and the true positives and true negatives are very small. In other words, it doesn't do much better than doctors or even us on the list in categorizing which one of the little"devils" we have: UC or Crohn's.

But if you like to have tests done, be my guest. It is the old adage which I often quote: "There are macro thinkers and micro thinkers" If you are a macro thinker you will realize that there is one big problem and that is bowel disease with pain, bleeding, diarrhea, debilitation, no growth, etc. etc. If you want to break them down into two categories; UC and colitis, fine! If you want to break UC into 10 categories, fine! In the meantime, until SCD, all that could be done was drugs, surgery, and some possible
relief (????) from alternative medicine with their Ultraclear, etc. Good luck to your Prometheus list!!!

Through the (SCD) Specific Carbohydrate Diet, explained in this book, our son was able to get off medication and thrive. He healed himself and was able to go away to college. Last month he had a relapse, had surgery and by going back on the diet he was able to put himself in remission. The doctors are amazed with his latest tests and told him he did not need medication, but he must stick to the diet. I have bought over a dozen of these books and shared them with doctors, family members, and friends. I strongly recommend this book for any IBD/IBS issues.
