I’m looking for information from others or from parents whose child has UC and what medication successes they have had. Also if the child/teen has tried SCD diet and if so with what success? My daughter was diagnosed last October at 14 years old. Prescribed Asacol and prednisone. After about 4 months she was weaned from the prednisone. First flare up was in July 2011 and in August was hospitalized for 11 days. In addition to Asacol, Imuran was added as well as prednisone again. The bleeding has still continued and seems to be getting worse again. Lab tests show no problems with her liver handling the meds. Her Dr. will either increase the Imuran or possible change to Remicade.
With teenage years being so challenging, the best coping skill is denial for her at this time and lashing out.
I feel very strongly about implementing the SCD diet from all my research and would love feedback from other teens or their parents in similar situation.

All of the posts from “Annonymous UC” are from ulcerative colitis people who anonymously submitted stories or Doctor Reviews, medication, supplement reviews etc… I post all these stories to the site, but they’re different from my own personal stories so hopefully this account makes more sense:) -Adam – founder of iHaveUC.com
