I am ready to say that after 2 years of a uc flare, I am in remission!
I was wondering if anyone with uc has tried the medifast diet? It is low calorie and basically liquid. The dr approved that I do it. He said that he was taught recently that uc goes hand in hand with obesity and fat cells in the abdomen may have an inflammatory effect on the bowel. He really encouraged me to lose weight. So has anyone with uc done this? Any other suggestions? I am almost ready for weight loss surgery but want to give this my best effort first.
Oh and other good news, after my capsule endoscopy, my gi says I do not have any signs of cancer in the small intestine, a previous report said there were nodularities consistant with lymphoma. Praise God, I can quit worrying about cancer at 33!
