Drinking Alcohol and Ulcerative Colitis

Introduction:

I have been diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis.
I can’t drink alcohol

My Current Colitis Story:

When I went to see my gastroenterologist I specifically asked about alcohol consumption.
He said alcohol and UC were not linked in anyway.
I went through a majorly tough year and divorce and my Ulcerative Colitis went sky rocketing. I also admitted myself to Rehab and quite the drinking for 4 months. My UC went away after 3 weeks.
I recently started drinking occasionally again and my UC has returned!!
Thanks for this site…I am gonna stop drinking again:)…. Just to see!
Man oh man this disease is not fun :(

  1. you can though. just stick to vodka and wine and be sure to eat before hand. NO beer. NO tequila. But vodka is even SCD approves vodka and wine.

  2. I don’t seem to do well with wine at all. I usually have to run to the bathroom after having a glass. I do better with hard liquor, but I limit myself to 1 to 2 drinks all evening. And I always make sure I eat first. Very important to do that!!
