I agree with Quincy in that you are in a fragile state, which means you have to take special precations no matter how big the sacrifice... But on the other hand, my two cents is that I would have to say that Ice Cream is a big NO NO. I have had UC for 3 years now and took notes about how my body reacted with food for about the first 2 1/2 years. And although I eat so much food that makes it hard to figure things out, I did see a correlation to my bleeding and sugar intake. Maybe that is just my body or type of UC, but i thought I'd let you know.
Severe Colitis (pancolitis) since January 9, 2005
currently: I must say Under Control, 1 formed BM/day
RX/day: 2.5mg prednisone every other day
Lost job and insurance 10/2007 and stopped taking asacol and Imuran
(believe me I know my body and do not recommend doing this!!!)
OTC: seldom use VSL#3, vitamins & other natural treatments
Diet: SCD helps tremendously, but am not strictly on it. For Lent I gave up peanuts, sweets, and fried foods...
