I am just curious and trying to learn what I can.
I was diagnosed with UC officially in 2016 (but first flare was actually 2008) and I am trying to learn anything I can about
it. My aunt has Crohn's, but she was never diagnosed with UC at all.
I am also trying to learn about
the MAP virus. One thing I read is that those diagnosed with UC have it morph into Crohn's often at about
the 10 year mark. I am approaching 10 years myself and have become curious about
this. I do have a friend who had this scenario play out......so I wonder how often it happens?
2008 acute proctitis, 2016 chronic UC
*Currently in remission verified by scope*
Meds: mesalamine (both ends)
Anti-inflammatory diet (IBD-AID from U of Mass)
Extras: Ginger tea, Advanced gut health probiotics, Primadophilis Reuteri, Digestive enzymes, Vitamins D, C & K, fish oil, cal/mag, Benefiber, raw potato starch, homemade kefir (water and milk both).
