I just saw my GI this afternoon, and he said for me to start taking 10mg of pred every other day, then to quit after I go for an interview on April 23-24 (my primary goal in treatment right now was to be well for my interview). He said he thinks taking 10mg every other day actually works better to get your adrenal glands going again.
There are a lot of different schools of thought on pred, it seems.
And don't be too mad with your GI about diet...what makes UC symptoms worse is so individualistic, he's not going to be able to tell you what to avoid. It really is something you just have to figure out for yourself.
