Today's my first day out after being hospitalized for a week because of a horrible flare. I was flaring for about
5-6 months before being hospitalized and it just gradually kept getting worse until then. I'm now down to 4-5 BMs a day, occasionally having some very slight cramping before a BM, and all the BMs and very watery. I know UC is very individualized but I'm wondering what I can do to possibly try and improve my symptoms, keep myself healthy, and how I should test what foods I can eat.
I'd like to know how some of you handle things like snacking, going out to eat, fast foods, and if a flare is coming in what do you do to try and recover? Any little tip is greatly appreciated
. Also what kind of diet do you follow?
Some other info:
• I had my first dose of Remicade 3 days ago
• I've been gluten free for about
3 days (I'm kind of doubting this is helping me or not.)
• I've been on Asacol HD 4.8 mg since September
• And Prednisone and Pantoprazole both 40 mg since mid November
