Osteopenia (hip and spine) from prednisone use.  Started Azathioprine because I was steroid dependent.

Thanks for sharing, noticed they mentioned US and Europe, but not Canada. Thought Canada had the highest per capita cases of IBD.
Dx:  UC Proctitis 2006
Meds:  None so far. Garlic works to ease flares. My GI laughed when I told him and said it was just coincidence.
Diet:  Regular fresh garlic, Biobest yogurt daily, Omega 3 supplements, very limited junk food, carbs and processed food, low fat diet.  Lots of fresh fruit and veggies (limited potatoes). 
Added: tumeric and probiotics.
