Ischemic bowel disase

I am planning on taking Chitosol.  Is Crohn's considered a Ischemic bowel disease and do you think it is safe for me to take Chitosol?  I am not having any problems with the disease now and have been doing well for a long time.

Thank you
Bern

Wish I knew what to tell you, but I am not familiar with that problem. Sounds pretty uncomfortable to me. Maybe you should see the Dr. sooner if possible. I had a problem with acid reflux a while back and my Dr. told me to eat smaller meals and if necessary to eat more often.  It worked for me but the weight I've put on is unreal.  Now I have to try to take it off and its real hard.
