Welcome to the forum.
Yes, docs like to tell you there's no connection indeed.
And then they'll push the big pharma drugs too...
The fact is, there is a huge connection between diet and IBD,
especially with the ******ization of our grains that has been happening.
I like PALEO because it is anti-inflammatory.
I started out with SCD, and eventually migrated to Paleo, which I have stayed on. It certainly reduced greatly all symptoms. ANd LDN - low dose naltrexone did finally put me in remission.
If you are interested, there are things IMO that you can control, which will have a direct impact on
your disease, the symptoms you experience and their severity.
I was able to control my UC into remission through various
supplements, probiotics, diet modification, and LDN , low dose
For more info on the protocol which has put me into remission,

I hope you feel better and let us know how we can help
