While flaring, I cannot tolerate high fiber foods. I have to stick to a low residue diet. I do add a tablespoon of Red Mill ground flaxseed meal to my cereal in the morning.
I attribute this flare (winding down after suffering for three months) to eating too much red meat while on vacation....pizza, steak...etc..ugh. I should know better.
Diagnosed with ulcerative proctitis in 1998 in hospital
Hospitalized (2nd time) in May 2008 for ten days.
Remission Nov 08 thru May of 09.
Slowly coming out of flare. Meds: Colazal (6 per day), prednisone 10 mgm and tapering weekly, Cort enema nightly, Canasa in morning, Benicar 20 mg for BP, flaxseed oil 3 x a day, fishoil 2 x a day, probiotic 3 x a day, calcium with D 1x a day and multivitamin.
Doctor had me on 100 mgm of 6MP which drastically lowered my white count. Now off the 6MP pending results of repeat white count. UGH.
