Also utilizing testosterone pellet therapy for low testosterone. Had colonoscopy today, gastroenterologist said melanosis of colon could be from drinking herbal tea. Everything I have read relates to laxative abuse, senna use etc. Do not use laxatives and the only herbal tea I drink is a roibus tropica tea blend from Teavana (20 oz daily). Eat a diet high in fiber. Also take a multi vitamin (Alive once daily for women 50+). Just stumped as to what else could cause the melanosis in my colon? Thank you!
