It is possible I suppose, but what other meds are you taking?

Are you eating enough?

Are you checking your blood sugar through testing or by how you feel?

What are your UC symptoms at this time....

~UC meds: Asacol (3 x2 daily); Salofalk enemas nightly for flares & taper to maintenance 
~Bentylol (dicyclomine) 20mg as needed; Ranitidine (reflux);  Effexor XR 75mg(depression);  Pulmicort/Airomir (asthma) 
~vitamins/minerals/supplementsProbiotics....(Natural Factors Protec, Primadophilus Reuteri Pearls). @ bedtime
~various digestive enzymes as needed
~URSO for PSC (or PBC) 500mg X 2 daily (LFTs back to NORMAL!!)
My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS"  worth it !!!

I'm assuming you're flaring.....what are your symptoms, how many times are you going? what's the consistency..etc?

Are you eating enough food of the proper values in order to keep your blood sugar up?
