Hey, if you’re NOT treating your UC with medications, this is not going to be too much of intereset for you. BUT, if for some of you using medications, this might help clear things up.
Specifically, if you used to take Asacol (now called Delzicol), you’ve probably realized by now that it is no longer being manufactured. I know that there’s alot of you who are still concerned about this change (similar to Colazal switching its name to Apriso) so I’m hoping that this video from the Mayo Clinic will help you understand exactly what has and has not changed.
Thanks again for watching and for being a part of the site.
Best of luck to you all who are super pumped to be starting out September once again. I’ve always felt like September was sort of the official end of the summer (northern hemi folks), but on the other side, all you folks down there in the south side are getting ready for springtime eh…?
I’m going to be posting up a video soon with a recap on how I’m feeling, and what’s new with me. Got a bit of work to do, but should be cool.

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.
