Hey there UC’ers,
Late last week, I received and email from the medical student who is helping to administer the SCD Clinical Trial from Rush University Medical Center.
Here is the letter:
Good news, we have recruited all of the SCD subjects that we need. In fact, we are getting too many to enroll now. I really appreciate your help as many people have cited your website as the place where they heard about the study. Now that we are on our way, could you possibly post an addendum saying that we don’t need anymore people who are on the diet. Control subjects are still welcome to enroll. Let me know if this is possible, thanks!”
So great job to everyone who has participated in this study so far. As you can see, they are still in need of people who want to be “control” subjects. That means they still need people for the study who ARE NOT using the Specific Carbohydrate Diet. If that is you, and you would like to participate, please contact them. There information can be found on my original post about the clinical trial here. Or you can go directly to the RUSH university site here.
Have a great day, and thanks again everyone who has participate in this so far. (It was pretty funny going to the Fed Ex drop box and placing a bag of my poop in it a few different times…. you can imagine that right.
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.

Remember while using the site that:
UC symptoms and flare ups don’t last forever and no two people are the same.
You cool with that? good!
