Hi princesa,

 

I have heard that being on a low carb diet really helps UC. I have had troubles with losing weight by not eating carbs. What do you eat to maintain weight.

 

I’m 105lb and really don’t think it is good to be below 100.


Female 32 years old
 
Diganosed ulcerative colitis November 2007
Present medication- 1/2 X 500mg pentasa in the morrning= 250g pentasa (I reduced this to see how my diet will effect me) and 1 X250g Asacol every other evening
Diet- Tried raw food diet with 80% raw foods, found some pro's and cons. Started to add more products to keep up weight as mine did not balance. Still eating raw spinage and still am combination eating. No dairy No gluten.  
 
Other medical problems- Born with asthma- no medication taken for this.

From my experience, I suspect it is the elimination of gluten/breads that helps, rather than lo carb. You are still gluten free?

Your medication doses are very low, I assume that is intentional.

Raw spinach tears me up! Are you sure it's not irritating you? I can't eat iceberg lettuce either, even now that I am healed from Remicade.

Bad flare in March, used prednisone. Humira denied, started Remicade 4/12 and doing great~
