I Have UC
I was diagnosed 2 week ago with UC. I am from Chattanooga Tenn., My interest are in sports and music. I am currently on predisone, flagil, and an iron pill.
I started having “loose stools” starting around Oct. 4 2010, I didnt think much of it so I didn’t tell anyone until I started to have blood in my stools about 3 weeks in. I went to my doctor who sent me home with no answers. I got worse and went to the emergency room and they sent me home with an antibiotic and iron pills but still no answers. Two days later I broke out into a fever and went to a different ER, they admitted me and I had a colonostopy the next day. They diagnosed me with UC. They gave me predisone and basically told me I had only 2 choices left since the prednisone was not working well enough -Remicade or Surgery to remove my colon. I am only 17 so I don’t want to do either. I had heard that there were diets you could try but when I ask my doctor he said food had nothing to do with it. I have been in the hospital for 16 days and I will be basically checking myself out tomorrow and trying this diet thing. I found your website and i t was very encouraging. I don’t know a lot about the foods I am suppose to eat so any help would be appreciated such as tips on starting the SCD diet and keeping on the diet.
