As you can see by my signature, I'm not currently taking a multivitamin. I take a lot of iron per my doctor's suggestion, and instead of a probiotic in pill form, I eat a homemade yogurt (which I'm happy with). So my question is, what am I missing (if anything)?
I know that I should at least be taking a multivitamin of some sort (probably one in liquid form, so I don't poop it out), but is there anything else that us UC-sufferers tend to be low on? Anything that I should take in addition to a standard multivitamin?
Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
