That’s right. It seems my ulcerative colitis knew I had sushi for lunch today. It was the first time in many a months to have that stuff that I used to eat all the time. And guess what, I surely didn’t have a hard or formed stool to show for it.
I was caught in a sushi restaurant for work earlier and tried eating a few sushi rolls with cucumber, the california rolls, and some tiny tuna rolls, I think they call them tekka rolls. It looked good, and surely tasted good with a little soy sauce, you know how it goes.
But when the day of work was through, I came home and headed straight to the bathroom as usual. And today, unlike most of the previous days, it wasn’t a hard stool or crap as many call it.
So my conclusion is that for me, sushi, or maybe just the rice on the sushi rolls doesn’t mix with my colitis factor. I am sure there must be some studies out there or other opinions on diet affecting the colon’s ability to make hard stools, especially when eating sushi. And for now, my study is telling me that sushi is not great for my UC.
Just a quick simple test, it needs to be duplicated many more times to be clear, and that’s that.
If you are reading this and happen to have the following going for you:
- have ulcerative colitis
- currently symptom free
- off medication
- eat tons of sushi, and in specific sushi rice
- drink quite a bit of sake
please share how you are making it work. there are probably some others who want to know your secret, myself included.
Going to miss you sushi,
I started site and the eNewsletter(you can join that below) shortly after being diagnosed with ulcerative colitis in October of 2008 with severe pancolitis (when my whole colon was inflamed).
For me, it was a very rough start with severe symptoms. Getting bounced from medication to medication was not easy or too helpful. But, I did meet another UC’er, changes several parts of my diet, and of course the rest is history.
