I have a question about colitis and nutrition. Even if the colitis is in the lower left sigmoid, can a person have nutritional deficiencies? I noticed after starting treatment a spurt of hair growth that I have not seen in many years. I wonder if I have been deficient in some nutrients. I did not have a lot of diarrhea, in fact, sometimes I had constipation. Thanks!
