I hear people say that weight loss is a sign of UC.  In the past three or four months I've been dieting and exercising consistently and I've dropped at least 25 pounds.  I feel real good and don't have any real symptoms except gas.  Is it normal for people to lose that much weight during that amount of time or could it be from UC?  I should also add that I was on Prednisone March of last year and I heard that it takes about 6-12 months for it to leave your body.  Could that be it?
