Added 13 Apr 2011:
April 13, 2011: this question can be considered closed for now. FYI: after a colonoscopy in Feb. my diagnosis did not change: microscopic colitits. My GI doctor preferred to treat me with Entocort EC 3mg. Within 48 hours I could tell a difference. Within a week my trips to the bathroom were down to two. The symptoms of urgency and frequency seem to now be resolved. This is after many years of being on ASAcol; trials of prednisone; rowasa enemas, and lotronex when it first came out on the market. I will be pleased if the results hold when this twice daily 3mg. Entocort is down to once a day and maybe off it for periods of time.

In response to your question my mother just had the same thing and was diagnosed with lymphatic colitis which was seen through microscoptic colitis (her colonoscopy). The doctors put her on Asacol which has been three weeks now which provided a tiny bit of relief. The problem is she's so weak and fragile because nothing I mean no foods will stay in her system. I had my father admit her to the hospital today which they put an IV in her for 2 hours but this doesn't answer or help WHY she can't keep any food in her system. The doctors have now prescribed prednisone. Do you have any other suggestions? I know her immune system is horrible after 8 weeks of this. I'm desperate to try and help my mom and the doctors seem to have no sense of urgency. Also any help on what foods you're eating that helped you with this issue would be great.
