I mean, ~600,000 people already die from from UC issues ... [/sarcasm]
I'm confused. The article says colon cancer causes 1 million cases and 600,000 deaths worldwide every year, not UC.
I just thought the article was interesting. No decision as to how I feel about
what it says. That's why I posted it.
Colitis is in remission. No longer get IBS.
Figuring out how to reduce a flare or get into remission is a trial and error experience. Don't expect your GI to have all the answers. He was trained in making diagnoses, prescribing medications, and surgically removing the colon. He was not trained in alternative treatments. That's why they are called alternative treatments.
What works for me: Fecal transplantation, Probiotics, Anti-inflammatory foods, No HFCS, No crystalline fructose, No foods high in fructose, No artificial sweeteners, No pro-inflammatory foods when flaring, vitamins & supplements, Lexapro (for stress).
