Vitamin E enema Proctitis


Mon, July 01, 2019 7:55 PM

Wife only has ulcerative proctitis only, was in remission for over a year until April and the doctor is pushing for humira. As a last resort, has anyone tried a vitamin E enema? I’ve read two successful studies about this but would love to hear anyone else’s experience

I’m also dealing with ulcerative proctitis only and I’m curious what meds your wife has taken so far? I have been on Pentasa for years but when this flare started last Oct, my GI has tried prednisone and Cortenema but the symptoms come right back when I taper off the prednisone. I have an appt on Tuesday to discuss next steps. I haven’t heard about Viatmin E but now I will ask my GI.
