I know heat can affect my digestive system horribly, whether I am in a flare or not. It will give me D.
A lack of sleep over a course of a week will almost always initiate a flare. Sometimes the flare takes hold, and sometimes it settles after I get enough sleep.
Dx: UC Proctitis 2006
None so far. Garlic works to ease flares. My GI laughed when I told him and said it was just coincidence.
Started Meds: Apr 9 08 500mg 5ASA (salofalk) to ease flare, tapering, stopped.
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.
