This is an interview I had with some friends of mine named Vinny and Louis. They have both known me for over 10 years(so that’s both before and after I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis). And I’m hoping that it can give you some insight into my thoughts about living with UC and maybe help […]
A story from an ulcerative colitis patient from India who has struggled with the disease for 7 years but is now in remission even after multiple doctors said surgery. Read his story to learn about the steps he has taken to get to where he is now with his ulcerative colitis.
Brian’s story about how he has gone from sick with UC to feeling healed. He explains very concisely what he is doing differently now to treat his UC.
I have been too much of a chicken to get my colonoscopy completed, although it has been over 5 years since I had one last time, and I can blame that only on myself (no matter how many excuses I can come up with), but this experience was certainly a surprise and I would highly […]
I would like to know from other users if they have also experienced any type of random muscle / joint pain and any skin conditions such as hives or psoriasis. My primary doctor ran a full metabolic panel which showed I test positive for ANA’s ( antinuclear Antibodies )

Hello! My daughter, Lindsay, was diagnosed first with Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis 5 years ago, and then a year later with Ulcerative Colitis. Lindsay is now 11 years old and she has come a long way. She controls her UC with the SCD diet and some supplements. She is diarrhea free, but not symptom free as […]
