Quincy is so right. However, some of us have GERD and hiatel hernia and gallbladder problems so we think they are all related and are not.
However, my doctor told me while flaring, bleeding probably be easier on my colon if I ate bland, low fiber food until healed. I also have IBS for many years so hard to separate the two - IBS and UC. WE all are different and have to find what works, what we can eat, when to eat it and when not to.
Keeping a diary of food and times, etc. helps.
I am so fortunate not to have had this UC for too long since I am now 68.
