Ulcerative Colitis Tips

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

Will this Help Anyone, It Helped Me

Like most of the stories I’ve read here, I’ve experienced them. I’ve had Ulcerative Colitis for 6 years now and have tried everything under the sun. To complicate things, I had my gall bladder removed 2 years ago. I hated not being able to leave my house. A living prisoner.

There is GOOD NEWS:

My Ulcerative Colitis is in check with Colazal. 3 pills/3 times a day, but was still having to go 10x / day. My PCP prescribed Cholestyramine for Oral suspension. 2 packets / day. After day 2 of taking this non-invasive tang tasting stuff, I’ve NOT had any issues and LIVE A NORMAL LIFE for the last 6 months. This medicine was originally created to help people with high cholesterol, but proved to be not very effective. It does however bind everything up. My hope here is, that it can help other people here.

Good luck to everyone!

    Hi AJ,

    Thanks for this info, had no idea about this drug. For how long did you continue taking it and did it have any side effects?
