Hi – I was diagnosed with UC when I was 22 years old, I had years of an up and down battle with remission that wasn’t unbearable to live with. I am now 28 and it has snuck up on me at it’s worst.
Here are some videos and food ideas that work for many people who are suffering from ulcerative colitis.
