How long do you go on a liquid diet for? I am planning to start one tomorrow. The last time I tried it, it was too hard. However, I am planning to be persistant this time. When I was in the hospital, I was on it for about 1 week, but I had an IV.
26m - Dx January 2005
Normal medication: 12 tablets of Asacol daily
New: Entocort 9 mg

Why do you think you need to go on one?

Are you using rectal meds as well?

You could adjust your diet somewhat rather than going on a liquid diet.

Yes, being in the hospital is different....they do extremes to keep you in one place to heal quickly, to get you out as soon as possible. Not that it's a neg, but they have a purpose to get you feeling better quickly.

*Heather* Status..Asacol  (3 x2 daily); flaring /Dec 22, tapered to every 3rd nite..back to nightly (Jan 22)..tapered too fast
~diagnosed January 1989 UC (proctosigmoiditis)
~Bentylol (dicyclomine) 20mg as needed; Ranitidine (reflux);  Effexor XR 75mg(depression);  Pulmicort/Airomir (asthma) 
~vitamins/minerals/supplementsProbiotics....(Natural Factors Protec, Primadophilus Reuteri Pearls, Natural Factors Ultimate). @ bedtime
~various digestive enzymes as needed; started Omega 3 
~URSO for PSC (or PBC) 500mg X 2 daily (LFTs back to NORMAL!!)
My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS"  worth it !!!
