Current Flare up has been going on for about a month and a half.
Longest one I have had so far since diagnosed three years ago.
Taking Lialdia along with natural supplement remidies of Chlorophyll and Orka.
Diet is mainly meats(steak, chicken, tuna), Canned Fruit, Milk, Eggs, O.J., Vegitables( Frozen Veggies).
-Feeling Very fatigued, dizzy, unable to concentrate.
-Going about 5 times a day
-Bright red blood in stool
My questions are..
-should I get blood drawn to check to see if im anemic?
-Change my diet?
-Take any different medication?
Thanks for your help.
Alex, you should consider getting a full check up to determine if you are anemic; I've noticed that many UC sufferers are, or were anemic including myself. In terms of diet, you will have to experiment to see what works for you and what doesn't. In my situation I avoid processed sugars...I see you eat canned fruit, which is high in sugar (the syrup) and O.J. which is also high in sugar, I also don't drink milk (or O.J) anymore because of it's high sugar content ...I take calcium supplements instead and vitamin C supplements occasionally.
Another idea is to consider seeing a nutritionist.
