I'm 21, have had what I suspect is UC since at least 2005. Was really really bad summer 2007 which is when I went to the doctors about it. They told me I had UC and put me salofalk (5ASA). Was allergic to it and got pancreatitus. Eek. Not fun. Was then put on prednesone and started a diet with a naturopath that was insane. Got a little better (not full remission). Got a little worse when started tapering down. Then got lots worse. Had an infection of the intestinal wall and was put on Cipro. Cipro started giving me cramps in my hands so i got off that. Now tapering off of prednisone and have been on Imuran for 3 months. Not full remission but no blood, no crazy urgerncy and only about 4 bms a day. Stools is partially formed and watery only on bad days.

I don't drink coffee, milk, pop, or pure fruit juice (unless I mix it half with water or put it into my oatmeal)
I eat a yeast free bread that I found but sometimes I eat bread out which I should limit.
I've limited my sugar intake...(in theory...chocolate should not taste so good darn it)
I hardly ever eat fast food anymore.
I cook alot of my own meals and I've found a few vegetarian alternatives that work for me like veganaise instead of mayo.
Goats cheese instead of normal cheese.
I eat lots of yogurt (mostly plain sweetened with stevia or else all natural vanilla yogurt if it's sweetened with honey)

On top of the daily yogurt you eat, you should still take a good probiotic supplement which would contain tons more live bacterial cultures than any yogurt...one I use with some success is called primadophilus reuteri made by natures way.

My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it! LOL :)
