Hi I’m Molly, I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis about 8 months ago and have been on the SCD diet for about six months.
I was diagnosed following a bout of very strong antibiotics. My symptoms were bloody diahrrea, nausea, and terrible stomach pains. I was running to the bathroom many times a day…. a couple of time embarrasingly I didn’t make it. The Gi first tested me foe Celiacs then Crohns and then told me I have UC. After the Colonoscopy he told me I have Colitis and just gave me a presription for Asacol…. it did nothing. The pain intensified anyway as well as the diahrrea and everytime I would call him he would just increase the dose. I got so sick from not eating that I ended up in the hospital with severe dehydration. The doctor on call told me that it’s probably just the stomach flu and sent me home. I was miserable, I had a young child, a job, a husband and I felt like I couldn’t get up to do anything. I couldn’t even play with my baby. I fel t like such a bad mother. I switched GI doctors… and he gave me Prednisone, which despite all the side effects worked wonders for me. Then I went online and found this website which strongly recommended the SCD diet….. I gave it a try. I have to say it really worked! I am now on the diet 6 months about and I am currently off all meds. I take a multivitamin designed for the SCD diet and a probiotic VSL 3 but that’s it. I feel like I got my life back. I am now the healthiest I have ever been, currently working, and taking care of my family, and I have to say I feel great. So thanks Adam for this wonderful site because without it I never would have overcome it like I did.
Medications: I was on prednisone, Asacol.. but now I,m off all meds on the scd diet and taking a probiotic VSL #3

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
