Since around September 2010 I've been having some serious stomach issues. Chronic diarrhea 3-4 days out of the week having a bowel movement 10-15 times per day. No matter what I drink or eat, I'm running to the bathroom 10 minutes later. Ive lost around 20lbs in that period, muscle and fat but wayyy too much weight period. I just had a colonoscopy done and he did a double biopsy on my colon but I'm still wating for those results. I also did an upper GI with barium yesterday and am still waiting on those results too. In the meantime my doctor did suggest that I start using a probiotic immediately. I just stocked up on some Activia and am using a probiotic now that is 10 billion CFU of just one strain, lactobacillus acidophilus. I went to my local vitamin store and was overwhelmed by the selection of probiotics with various strains and different unit dosages. Liquid..tabs..and capsule form. My doctor was pretty vague on which one to use and I'm real desperate to get better. I figured somebody here at PM had to be an expert on the topic so I wanted to get your guys advice on what, when and where so I can go grab exactly what I need. Please fellas and ladies..HELP!!!
