Hi Sjane39 and welcome! In addition to the low residue diet, there are many here like you who do the carb restricted diets as well. We have lots of discussions about the Maker's Diet, the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD), and the Life Without Bread (LWB) diet. As you suggested, I think it's *possible* the addition of more carbs to your diet might have triggered your flare. In any case, the carb-restricted diets are used for both UC and Crohn's, so it's possible you will be fine doing what you are used to as far as diet once you get things under control.
Do you take any kind of probiotic? Many here have positive results with them!
Again, welcome to the forum! Hope things turn around for you real soon!
