It's use Corsadyl mouthwash (I have bad ulcers)

So who do I believe & why?

I mean, after they have eaten that way for many months/years, the gut may heal, meaning not leaking food proteins into the blood to the same extent, so fewer other food reactions iykwim

I have steroids, Difflam & she wants to know why I've never been referred before because I've always been told to "get on with it"

& please don't mess with my diet anymore until they have time to look at my blood tests & results

My neighbour used to swish a little buttermilk around her mouth a few times a day when she had them and it worked.

Have you been checked for diabetes?

If the bread is homemade, how much yeast are you adding? I had to stop eating home made as I got lovely doses of thrush when I over indulged hmm

I'm just going to take the steroids (& the antibiotics & the antihistamines) and wait & see what happens at my next appointment

The lady I saw was amazing - she said let's get you out of pain and worry about why you get them next time; but she did say don't change my diet anymore

Buttermilk is a no-no I think as I am definitely milk intolerant - but yeast bears looking at
