G2B...but, you're still having problems.
Everyone should change their diet to eat as healthily as possible....but we should be able to have our cake and eat it too. Constant stress about what we eat can also cause some symptoms that may really not be food related. I've been there, I can relate.
If you choose to not take meds that could help, that's something you may eventually pay dearly for, because you're only focussing on the food aspect.
I'm not saying food won't give you some symptoms...that's where the wise choices come in.
A slow simmering inflammation can do you more damage ultimately than treating it with meds.
Where is your UC extended to exactly?
When was your last c-scope?
Do you see your doc often?
Have you had stool samples done to make sure nothing else is going on?
Are you taking a fibre supplement? Prodiem and Benefibre I believe have non-carb fibre...I'd have to check it out.
Are you using artificial sweeteners?
Have you been diagnosed with IBS?
Have you tried any antispasmodics?
Some digestive enzymes can cause diarrhea and loose stool...maybe that's part of it for you?
