People who think diet has nothing
to do with UC drive me nuts.
Actually people who can only see one point of view, their own, drive me nuts. And I consider the posters here to be my neighbors because we talk a lot more between ourselves than flesh and blood neighbors.
Just because diet has been my salvation from UC-hell does not make me tell everyone that they must
follow my diet. I try to say "What works for me" when passing info along.
We are all different.
Before this last diet mod. succeeded I failed several times with diet modification and would have said "Diet mod. doesn't work, I tried it."
Current diet=modified Paleo (sm amts of swiss cheese)
In remission April 2010 after 10 years of UC with no remission ever
gluten-free (bleeding stopped) and dairy-free (less gas) started remission path+food diary
current meds=(9)Balsalazide daily (mesalamine enema only when needed)
Rx meds have never worked for me except for mesalamine enema
