Funny you ask that about
the weight gain! I was just diagnosed with UC in Nov 2010. Still on Prednisone and am looking for alternitives... the reason I found this sight. Not only did I just gain 15 lbs in 3 weeks, it caused me to have a bad yeast infection, in which I added another medication to keep the yeast infection away, and I am growing facial hair above the lip!!!! May for a guy this would be okay BUT not for me!!! I go back to the docs this thursday. Doc mentioned the remicade, which I might do. But I have started to look into the Specific Carbohydrate Diet.
