Hi My name is Tricia and my daughter has recently been diagnosed with UC
At the moment I feel I need all the information and support I can get to help my daughter manage this condition and get back to living the life she wants to live .
Yogurt Maker Question
My daughter has recently been diagnosed with UC. She has previously had very good health and enjoyed living life to the full. For the last 7 months she has very gradually become more unwell and tired until 3 weeks ago she was admitted to hospital as an emergency following a severe flare up She has just been discharged from hospital. She has had intravenous steroids for 14 days and is now taking oral steroids for 12 weeks plus Penntassa. At no time whilst she was in hospital was diet ever discussed and even when she asked to see a dietician she was told that she should eat a normal healthy diet with no specific changes to her diet being necessary or important. The consultant also told her that diet played no part in the treatment for UC. and that medication was the only way to control the illness.
We have bought your very informative book after finding your web site by accident and reading all the testimonials from so many people who have so many interesting and inspiring stories to tell, and after much research my daughter has started on the SCD diet. She is coping well with the diet and although she does feel extremely tired at times she has now returned to work and is anxious to get on and live her life as she would want to. Together we have managed to adapt to the SCD diet and as a family we are adapting and finding new recipes to make to make the diet interesting and healthy.
We have bought the EASYO yogurt maker and various sachets to make the yogurts, Could anyone tell me if these sachets of yogurt mix are safe on the SCD diet and if this non electric yogurt maker is the correct one to be using.
I would be very grateful for any advice.
