Hi...it seems you might then be in line for a stool sample testing process...have it done just in case you've picked up something else in your travels.
If so, at least you'll know what you're dealing with.....and besides, having an invader in the gut could very well trigger your UC , so best to deal with everything rather than assuming it's only UC. At least you will be treated.
6MP isn't enough if you're flaring, and I would still suggest other support meds such as 5ASA oral (asacol) and rectal enema since you used them in the past.
How long do you have to be on the chloroquinine? It can cause diarrhea, cramping, etc......but.....you have had increasing symptoms such as would follow a UC flare.
I would also suggest you lighten your weight lifting as to not push your body beyond its ability to heal.
I think for protein...meat sources and eggs....the rest such as peanut butter...depends on if it's too much oil for your system or not. Very subjective. But I wouldn't "rely" on it as a major food source...a snack, yes.
You don't mention carbs at all....I don't suggest cutting them out, but others do. Whatever healthy carbs one would consider to eat...again subjective...is necessary fuel for any exercise and for one's brain function....
You definitely need probiotics...
The fibre supplements vary from what each person can use. I use both the Metamucil smooth (not the sugar-free kind) and the capsules.
Don't use artificial sweeteners......
Oh, forgot to add that sometimes a c-scope clean-out and the scope itself can exacerbate inflammation, and since you had "some"....you may have been on the way to a flare at that point.
Hope you feel better soon,
