Okay, I have had Ulcerative Colitis since I was 18 and I am almost 22 years old now.
I am on my umteenth flare, and the only medication I am on is Asacol because I am not interested to go any further with that bull. I have been on various diets but never on the SCD diet. I just started the SCD diet a few days ago. After a year long remission, I started having a flare 3 weeks ago and I decided I had enough a few days back.
I had a liquid fast (home made carrot juice, apple juice, water, and chicken broth without the chicken), and now I have been on a solid diet for two days. I am following the SCD diet but for breakfast I am having boiled eggs with home made apple juice (nothing more), and for the rest of the day I am eating chicken broth with the meat. The problem is that my bleeding was somewhat reduced and my urgency has maybe went from 10 times a day to around 5ish.
Nevertheless, I am still experiencing diarrhea!
When will the diarrhea stop? How many days does it take for the SCD to really help?
Are the eggs making things more crazy? Should I slow down with the eggs and start eating something else for breakfast? And if so, what should I eat because I am lactose intolerant and can NOT handle milk or cheese at all, it makes my flares worse!
Please help :'( I am also going to University and I have a full course load that is eating away at my mind!!!)
