Hi, Barbara.

Your son's genetic susceptibility means that it just will be harder to resolve this than for someone with no genetic susceptibility AND that it will be a lifelong work for him to keep it resolved as he gets older.

The colonocytes (cells that line the colon) are turned on by butyric acid which is formed from normal bacterial action on fiber (Just discovered last year.) It is the colonocytes that form fecal secretory IGA!

With a child who has this serious condition, you really need to become an expert in the cutting edge of the research in this area. Unless one of his docs has a child like this you cannot reasonably expect that your docs will keep up with this rapidly progressing field!

Get a copy of Trent Michols, MD's book: "Optimal Digestion--New Strategies for Achieving Digestive Health". Let us know what you learn. His email is twnichols@blazenet.net which will help you keep up once you understand the basic concepts in his book.

Walt
