Thank you so much for sharing your story and making me feel a little better about all of this. My dose of two asacol three times a day has actually gotten this disease pretty under control. I am feeling a lot better and able to eat almost everything I was before without too many side effects. I will never let a disease define me :) I hope you are doing well and that your life settles down soon! emoticon

I was diagnosed with indeterminate colitis/ IBD just over a year ago. They did the biopsy, but could not tell whether it was UC or Crohn's. I have been on Humira for about a year now since nothing besides prednisone could keep it under control. I have recently changed jobs and I am in the middle of moving and even with all of that stress, although not perfect, my colitis has been controllable.

I wish you luck in your new journey. I remember how scared I was when I had my first flare and all of the tests that went along with it. Just know that you can still live a normal life and your diagnosis does not define you.

Microscopic colitis is a totally different diagnosis from inderterminent colitis and it doesn't fit my symptoms. They did a biopsy to help confirm if it was ulcerative colitis or Crohn's disease but the results were unclear as was the colonoscopy. My colon was visibly inflamed and I have had blood in my stool (both are not signs of microscopic colits). I also haven't had any really bad reaction to gluten (not more than any other food lately) so I doubt I have celiacs.

I appreciate your input and hope your microscopic colitis is under control.

It sounds to me as though you may have microscopic colitis if they did a bowel biopsy. The route follow with that is going gluten free. If you need any more help feel free to contact me. I was diagnosed with mc early this year, and also celiac which it normally presents with. Have a great day Jan.

After my biopsy results from my colonoscopy came in my doctor has given me the offical diagnosis of Indeterminate Colitis. I was wondering if anyone else on this board has this diagnosis or had this diagnosis and now has found out that they actually had UC or Crohn's.
