"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.

My name is Chris, I am 66 years of age. I am a Husband and Father. I still hold a full time Job.

I have Ulcerative Colitis which I feel really started approx 20 years ago. It became active approx 8 years ago and it erupts every so often. I have been clear for 6 months at a time and then active for 2 months. The eruptions can be quite severe. I have been hospitalised twice. A CURE a or a longer time in remission would be fantastic.

I don’t know what triggers my eruptions, I am not on any type of diet.

I will accept any advice.

My Medications:
My medication is;
1600 mg Asacolon} per day
75mg Imuran} ”

    My doctor recommended I keep a food diary and carefully try foods, 1 at a time. I asked how quickly would I know a food is aggravating my symptoms and he said it could take up to 2 days so if I have no problems with a new item within 2 days, it stays. Also, I have learned for some foods I can have smaller quantities without issue but if I have too much, I had a problem. So it can also be a moderation that keeps the food from aggravating the symptoms. Hope this helps and I hope you are well very soon.
