hi everyone! I've been reading some posts on here...very helpful & A LOT of information
To give you some background, I was diagnosed with UC a few years ago. I grew up eating a LOT of junk & fast food, drank sodas and downed candies like it was no one's business
No one in my family has IBD (though my sister had IBS). So...I keep blaming myself for this. If I had eaten healthier, I may never have gotten this dreadful disease!! Sometimes I wonder if I should have been vegetarian or vegan too. The main thing that keeps buggin' me is that I ate a lot of junk growing up and I think that screwed up my immune system & GI tract. I keep kicking myself.
Did anyone on here eat healthily or vegetarian and still get IBD? I'm convinced diet had something to do with my onset. what do i know though.
thanks so much!
