Got diagnosed UC for about 2 years now, also i already had symptoms since i was 18. I went to 2 really hard flare ups with taking 50mg prednisolon and immunesuppressives for about half a year. And i get so tired about taking all those pills. After some research i found this scd-diet thing and this chanel on youtube, which isn´t very popular in Germany, and now i´m trying to follow the instructions.
Some more about me:
I´m from Germany , near to Frankfurt. I sing in a band and do fire-twirling at Renaissance Faires, weddings etc. .I used to dance Latin dances professionally, but got into a flare too often, when training pensum got too much, so i had to quit.
I love being with people and hate being on my own- especially when i´m in a flare i can´t stand being alone.I´m very open minded, always trying to find something new that could interest me.
- blood in stool,
- low back pain ,abdominal pain
- inflammation of the tendons especially hands,shoulders and knees
- diarrhea of cause
Putting on Weight Instead of Losing?
I´m a 36 year old girl from germany.I can remember having symtomps since I was 18, but although i had a number of colonoscopys, doctors always told me i have nervous gut. The CU finally got diagnosed 3 years ago when i got into a totally burnout, which was a great release ´cos then a proper therapy started an no one concidered me being a psycho anymore. The diagnose itself was hard and i really had to give up some things that i really liked to do,´cos my body isn´t that tough anymore, especially when i do sports and the immune system starts working.
Instead of other CU people, who are trying constantly NOT to loose weight- I have problems to loose it and every time i take prednisolon it costs me more kilos on my hips. Last time i put on about 25 kilos , which i can´t get rid off.
Is there anyone who has the same problem?
I also lost most of my hair by taking the immunesuppressives and with the prednisolon i´m always like in a state of stress. Cant´sleep right, always sweating, red faced like coming right from the gym.
I think the colonocopys are bugging, but i´m always glad when the results are good .
But i decided not to get discouraged by my rebellious gut and won´t stop fighting against it and try to life a mostly normal life.
Lucky I have a boyfriend who supports me and who´s arms are always open, when i have weak moments again or get angry against my gut.
Even my boss is very sympathetic, but that might be ´cos i work as a physio.
After a lot of research i found this page and some usefull videos on youtube,while i was searching for the SCD-Diet, wich unfortunally isn´t very popular in Germany.
So if the diet might work out for me , I´ll try to make it much more popular here in Germany.
