This is interesting to hear - go carefully though - any chance of finding out what research is his basis for this? I've scoured for research on hormones and UC and am surprised how little there is, especially as onset often seems to be at times of hormonal change. I've found really conflicting information about
oestrogen, I seem to remember finding one study that recommended oestrogen as protective but have found more that say it is implicated in flares - such as the report here www.medpagetoday.com/MeetingCoverage/DDW/32794
- probably dependent on the person's age and I suppose gender.
Would be great if you could update how you get on if you go ahead with this.
