iron pills = bad for UC and colon. excerbates inflammation.
i usually become extremely iron deficient when flaring cuz i bleed so much everytime i go to the toilet.
my doc has me get iron infusions.
its 6 hours with an IV, but then your good to go for months up to a year (if constantly bleeding - longer if your not).
much easier way and more comfortable on the guts thats for sure.
steph - 32 - female - UC since 2000
currently flaring again.. grrr! (triggered by stress - grrr)
mesalazine granules 3g x1 a day (much nicer than a million tablets a day)
enteric coated fish oil -omega 3 (so they get all the way to my colon)
vitamin D3 x1 a day
prednisolone 25mg x1 a day (ick ick and did i say ick?)
tumeric capsules x3 a day
