I have a problem with milk but not with any cheeses, creamers, or yogurt (odd it is). Milk give me abdominal pain but no bloody d. I just tapered down to zero predisone recently after being on it for about 5 months (had a really bad flare). Havent had bloody/mucus poo since being on predisone, just hope it stays that way. Foods that ache my tummy and i stay away from are milk, potato chips, fried foods, high carbo foods, ice cream. Thats all i can think of at the moment. Havent really been pushed to a flare up from food but extreme abdominal pain is close to one i would say. When i flare up mean no bloody d stools. During my last flare up couldnt hardly eat anything nor did i want to. Had no appettite and anything i tried to eat sent me straight to the bowl to talk to the man about a bloody mule. Just had lots of water, soy yogurt, protein shakes, breakfast supplements. Read somewhere that you can try to food process your meal to make it mushy or shredded before you eat. My wife jokingly suggested baby food, but that may not be a bad idea after all. Flare ups are bad news.... Hope you feel better soon.

This is really an individual thing. You will have to figure out by trial and error things that don't agree w/ you. Foods don't bother my UC but some do cause my IBS to act up.

Also this topic comes up a lot. You may want to peruse through the posts for more answers.

If dairy bothers you, you may be lactose intolerant. Ask your doctor to test you. There are a lot of prepared foods that have milk products in them, so it would be good to know for sure. I'm sure if you do a search for lactose intolerance, you'll find earlier discussions of this on the board.

I just figured out how to delete my post. Here are mine, but I know everyone has individual triggers:

Other than the obvious like popcorn, very high fiber foods, nuts and seeds, here they are:

Red cabbage
Cereal with any kind of even lactose-free milk (weird, huh?)
Most forms of dairy
alcohol (a biggie)
Onions either raw or cooked very well
Clams and clam sauce
Iceberg lettuce
Any kind of citrus fruit

I know there are others, but I am blank right now!

yujin :)

It does sound like lactose intolerance is an issue with you, it can be masked by IBD (UC or CD) symptoms, best thing to do is get tested for lactose intolerance...I was severely lactose intolerant but didn't realize it because my crohns was masking it, taking a probiotic called primadophilus reuteri made by natures way has completetly aided with my lactose issues (must be taken everyday) and it kills many birds with one stone, it helps with high cholesterol as well and for women, vaginal has also benefitted my crohns and my IBS symptoms.

My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it!  LOL  :)
