During the day, my hunger pangs hit every couple of hours. I'm trying to eat lighter meals and save some food back for when they hit me again.
But the sweets craving is a new thing! I don't remember that before, and it is INTENSE!
I actually drove to the grocery store just to get one frosted doughnut (with sprikles), I was so desperate for cake. I didn't care that it was made with wheat.
I had just lost about 12 pounds but now I've gained back about three pounds. I know I need to try to go lo-carb to keep it under control. But the sugar is a problem! Sometimes Redi-whip with cocoa powder will satsify it...
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, tried to taper but now back up to 20-30 after several really bad days. Waiting for insurance decison on Humira...soon...
