Hi I too am very interested in what Kim had to say about diet,I have severe left sided UC,I'm on Azathrioprine 150mg a day,and although I don't think it has put me in remission,I think it may be limiting the severvity of the flares basically keeping it livable with,so I can work,and look after my kids,I think what I eat seems to control the UC day to day ie worse if I eat bread,dairy,sugar,and better if I stick with the scd diet.
I'm in a bit of a dilema now because,I don't want to be taking a drug like Aza indefinatly but I am scared to stop
taking it in case I have a massive flare and end up in hospital again,with the surgeons standing round my bed.
My consultant is pushing for me to have infliximab,and says if he showed any surgeon the pics of my colon they would'nt hesitate in taking it out straight away.I've gota few questions really for Kim,
what is the extent of your UC,were you ever on Azathrioprine,and I'm intrigued about what sort of anti-fungal meds you took were they pescribed,or can you just buy them because I feel I may need these too.
