If one has stool in the sigmoid, eating will trigger the urge to download it.
It's not the food...it's the process of digestion which starts and is triggered by the first mouthful.
It's not an anomalie, but remember that with UC (or IBS), the digestive system is very reactive.
I have no problem with it triggered in the morning....I welcome it because that's part of my bm routine.
I've only once had it happen in a restaurant...and that's when I was flaring....and I would rarely have it during other meals of the day.
What goes in makes stool eventually and it comes out...cycle of eating and waste processing.
If one doesn't like the urge during other times of the day, Bentyl/Bentylol can help.
But if you're flaring, rectal meds will help the inflammation, fibre supplements will help bulk the stool and the antispasmodic will help regulate the peristalsis....

My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
