Re: Potential "Patch" for AS

I am back from vacation now and had an appointment with my rheumatologist when I came back. She did not reject the idea of "leaky gut" and certain bacteria being involved with AS. She also did not reject the idea that Rifaximin can kill off those bacteria. Also, she said the Rifaximin is prescribed by some "functional doctors" but not by regular doctors without GI-symptoms (which you mentioned).
That being said, I am curious how your trial is going? Are you symptom free? Does your doctors check ESR, CRP, or serum IgA to find out if your disease is currently active?
