One of the 15,000 ulcerative colitis folks using the site adds:
"Like many UCers I have spent many hours trawling the internet googling the condition and came across your website a few years ago. I read your ebook and really liked your honesty and humour. As everyone says your positivity is so encouraging and now this is my go to website when I'm thinking about UC. Thankfully my symptoms are pretty much under control at the moment but just wanted to say thanks." Kate

Getting Better for the Moment – Jenni’s Colitis

Colazal – Making the Ulcerative Colitis Better

Hi, my name is Jenni.   I’ve had ulcerative colitis  for about 4 yrs now.  I’ve been on every medication there is, seems like it!  Awa!!

Very frustrating.

For me, I think stress brings it on for sure!!
Last yr 2010 was in hospital for a week and lost 20 pounds.   Not good at all so… the doctor put me on Remicade and it worked very good for a year.   Until this year symptoms started back same time as the year before.

So I went back to the doctor, but didn’t get anywhere.  So I switched my DOCTOR TO U of M for a second opinion and this doctor just put me on Colazal 4 pills day at 750 mg each pill.  The Colazal has been working so far so I’m hoping this will work!!

Advice: Don’t eat Red meat or drink milk!


Colitis Medications:

(Remicade) was great but very expensive ..$300 every time I go in, I have insurance too.
(Colazal ) 750mg 4 a day!! ..seems to be working right now and helped the bleeding!!
Plus Mesalamie 4g/60 ml,  hate doing!!!
