Hi there,

Salicylates in food, can it worsen ulcerative colitis symptoms?

I have noticed that certain foods make me ill - I think its either because there high in acidity or high in Salicylates...

I'll have to experiment to find that out exactly who is the culprit...

I would say if you know you're allergic or sensitive to them....then consider doing your own experiment.

I would say they wouldn't cause a problem with UC, but some symptoms could be exacerbated if you're already in a flare.

Remember that not all salicylates are the same or have the same side effects. 

This is a good site to list salicylates in food.  Keep us posted.

*Heather*Status: mini flare Dec 28... tapered to every second night
~diagnosed January 1989 UC (proctosigmoiditis)
~5ASA: Asacol (6 daily) + Salofalk enemas (increase for flares tapered to maintenance)
~Bentylol (dicyclomine) 20mg as needed
~vitamins/minerals/supplements 
~Probiotic 3(Natural Factors Protec) bedtime + 1 (Primadophilus Reuteri) occasionally
~multi-digestive enzymes as needed ....bromelain 1 - 2x daily
~Ranitidine,Pariet (reflux) Effexor XR 75mg;  Pulmicort/Airomir (asthma)
~URSO for PSC (or PBC) 500mg X 2 daily (LFTs back to NORMAL!!)
My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS"  worth it !!!
