This is the message and hopefully it is helpful to you now or in the future:
Just wanted to share some advice that will be obvious to some UC-sufferers but for others, it may be a useful reminder. I have been flaring since last May, (and being treated with Pentasa suppositories and for a while, prednisolone). I have been very careful with my diet, removing any “triggers” and fasting intermittently. When symptoms were worsening only about four days ago, I was unsure what to eat. In the end I simply ate very slowly and chewed my food into a mush before swallowing it. Thankfully now the bleeding has gone down considerably and I haven’t had any symptoms during the day. ((It’s my mornings that are problematic, but it’s always been like that).
So this is just a reminder for other UCers that this “common-sense” approach really helps.
Thank you again for your wonderful website.
Hope you are well and wish you a fruitful day ! “
I started site shortly after being diagnosed 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.
