Shelly Gunn et al. Reversal of Refractory Ulcerative Colitis and Severe Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Symptoms Arising from Immune Disturbance in an HLA-DR/DQ Genetically Susceptible Individual with Multiple Biotoxin Exposures. American Journal of Case Reports 2016;17:320-5.

Indoor mold exposure may also cause severe digestive problems as well. A case report described a formerly health 25 year-old man with no obvious health problems and ran 3 miles per day. After moving into a water-damaged rental building containing high levels of Stachybotrys and other molds- the man developed severe chronic fatigue, ulcerative colitis, severe abdominal pain, and severe bloody diarrhea. He was unable to work or exercise. Antibiotics and anti-diarrheal medications gave little relief from his diarrhea.

The patient was removed from the water damaged home and given replacement of VIP=- Vaso intestinal peptide. He gradually improved over a period of 3 months, has no symptoms of chronic fatigue or diarrhea, and has returned to his normal work and exercise. He is currently taking no medications except for food supplements.
