Hey all - curious to know how some people are able to go into full remission of AS. I've read that some people are able to achieve remission via diet or fasting. When I say full remission, I mean that they can go back to eating most, if not all starchy foods without any reaction and no longer have inflammation.
I'm trying to understand the what's happening to the gut or the mechanism to this change. Is the microbiome better balanced? Less klebsiella? etc...
I'm would imagine this has already been discussed. If anyone knows of a thread and can post a link that would be awesome.
Thanks!

Hello, thebluedog:

It took about 6 years on my own AP for AS before I no longer reacted to starches, however, it was a long journey of healing and two steps forward one and a half back. So perhaps other people can achieve this much sooner than I did:

I. STRICT DIET
way down the list are--
II. Antibiotics
III. Supplementation
IIII. Exercise

In my opinion, the KEY was getting rid of SIBO; no other explanation explains my absolute remission! I can't accept the "burn-out" proposition because I no longer get kidney stones or iritis which were the main reasons I decided to pursue remission via this more radical way.

HEALTH,

John

John,

That's very interesting..."the KEY was getting rid of SIBO". From what I understand, AS, begins in the small intestine with an overgrowth of klebsiella. Therefore, it makes sense that if you can eliminate SIBO, provide better bacteria balance, then you have less overgrowth of klebsiella.
John, am I on the right track? Please correct me if I've misstated anything.

It makes me wonder how many people with AS are either symptomatic or asymptomatic with SIBO.

89% according to a recent Chinese study using lactulose breath tests - https://ard.bmj.com/content/78/Suppl_2/1482.2
