I am having a problem with diarrhea (sorry) lately. I am on a quest to find the source of my issues because it has reached a level that it is truly affecting my life. I have consulted with my primary physician and the gastroenterologist who is managing my pbc, looking for the source of the issue. I have had extensive blood work and everything looks fine. In fact, it was nice to learn that my liver function test levels are lower now than they have been in many years, way into the normal zone. I had stool testing for various bacterial infections and a breath test for bacteria in the small intestine. Everything is coming back negative or normal. Frustrating but I guess illnesses have been ruled out. So I guess that leaves me with - it's something I'm putting into my mouth. It has reached a point that it doesn't matter what I eat, I still have the problem so I think I have ruled out food sensitivities and now I am down to medications. It's happening every day. I feel like it's up to me to figure out what it is and then maybe verify it with a doctor. Needless to say, I'm frustrated and discouraged.
Has anyone had digestive problems taking the Urso and were you successful in resolving them? Clearly the Urso is doing its job with my liver and I don't really want to stop taking it. I take 4 pills a day because of my size, two in the morning and two at night. I usually take the morning pills with my breakfast and an hour and a half later I'm in the bathroom for a long time. I seem to have no problems at night but I take those pills a couple of hours after my dinner. I'm wondering - first of all if the Urso is my issue and secondly, if taking the morning pills at a different time might make a difference. I'm hoping that someone "out there" may have had some experience with this and has a solution that worked for him/her?
