I believe anti-biotics has something to do with it. I have Rosacea and was perscribed long term antibiotics - tetricycline. I was on it for 3 months didn't really do anything except upset my tummy. Also have plently of sinus infections and was given different types antbiotics for that too.
Never knew antibiotics affects ALL the bateria in your system...even the good one! I'm sure it cause some of the good bateria to morph into what casued the UC. Now my immune system won't stop attacking my colon!
What about the law suit regaring accutane? Funny how none of the UC research points to the drugs! Guess that would hurt the pharmacuticle companies.
