I get more bleeding and gassiness if I don't eat enough. But you would have to try it to know how it effects you. Find something nutritious to drink if you try not eating! Don't get dehydrated!
Those days were maybe a blip from something still left in your gut or something you ate that you don't realize causes a problem for you. I'm sure that's an oversimplification. Anyway, just be glad with the improvement now!
I was interested to hear about research that 40 works "better" than 60, that's good information.
49 year old female attorney, diagnosed UC/pancolitis 1985, no surgery but much suffering. Asacol/5ASA 6x400 mg maintenance for 20+ years; use prednisone & Rowasa for flares.
August 2008 sought care of naturopathic doctor. Food sensitivity test showed wheat/gluten, other intolerances; eliminated all wheat/gluten from my diet. Probiotics (Ultimate Flora, 50 billion), trying Curamin.
Flaring, seasonal? or supplements too harsh? Back on prednisone, down to 10 mg. Waiting for insurance decison on Humira...
