Food, most definitely, can trigger upsets with UC. The foods you say are bothering you...I was told to avoid at all costs. I also have diverticulosis and pop corn, corn, and seeds really do a number on that. Best to follow a low residue diet, at least until symptoms of UC have ceased.
With this flare, which, by the way I have been in since April. The only thing that stops the bleeding is the prednisone. Hate to be on it this long and the doctor sure isn't happy about it either, but it beats bleeding all over the bathroom floor.

Remicade NOT an option. Not a candidate for surgery yet..says surgeon.
