Well most of the people here are going through severe ulcerative colitis... a lot of people with this disease don't ever need the use of this forum.
Pills are unfortunately a part of my routine.. as well as most here.
Food can exaserbate symptoms during a flare up, but it doesn't cause flares or uc. I think tryin to make a UC cookbook would be proactive if that is what you end up having. Who knows.. maybe you could end up helping your sisters! But also the foods that affect people with our disease are very individualized and it takes trial and error to find out what hurts ya and what doesnt.
