Hi
 
Can anone please give me some details of food  deit that are well tolerated for a bad flareup
Im on steriods and asacol and coidene for the pain but for weeks now im not improving much at all. I did have lots of pain and bleeding as I had been eating lots of bananas ( which i thought was a good idea at the time ? ) .. my GI has told me to eat a light diet and suggested white bread white boiled rice . I have also been eating green garden peas too
 
but is there anything else I can try ? .. i would love to have complan or ensure type of drink but they are full of sugar and i would mix them with milk.
 
I would be so grateful if anyone could spend a minute jotting down some ideas or things that have worked well for them .

I for one take it very mild. I just had a bad flare myself....I stay away from milk and milk products because It really seems to bother me, even when I don't have a flare going on but, much more so if I do. I eat rice, baked potatoes, toast and eggs. Actually for nearly 4 days all I had were these things and it helped me so much. As I started to feel better I was trying to eat salad and fruits again but realized I rushed it a bit so went back to the rice and potatoes.
Hope you start to feel better soon!

I agree with SGRUBB's suggestions and would add peanut butter, mashed potatoes, applesauce, bananas and some well-cooked veggies, like green beans and carrots, if you can tolerate them. Hope you feel better soon.

I'm on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet and it's worked wonders for me.

When I was flaring badly, I was able to get everything back under control following a very strict diet of:

Baked chicken and chicken broth
Soft cooked carrots
Hard (expensive) cheddar cheese
Eggs
Welch's 100% White Grape Juice
Olive Oil
Homemade yogurt
Salt and Pepper sparingly

I didn't let anything else in my body (aside from water of course). This was the product of much experimentation. Even drinking cheaper white grape juice would give me issues. These foods are all incredibly well tolerated.

I stayed on this until I was off of pred (6 months) and I've been symptom free and med free ever since!
Diagnosed with severe UC in July '06 (pancolitis)
Hospitalized and given IV steroids, then released on 60mg pred and Asacol
SCD since a week after hospital release.

Sept '06 Quit Asacol and started Digestive Enzymes.

Currently still on SCD.

100% Med-Free and 100% Symptom-Free since January '07.

SCD Works!!!
