Well then seeing as our immune systems are so determined to attack our gut flora, it would be safe to assume we are generally resistant to infections compared to the rest of the population. By the way is it possible I don't have UC? My uncle once got food poisoning from eating something bad, and he had diarrhea for 6 months after. Could it be something like that?
The fact that your gut is triggering an immune system response does not mean that you have immune super powers. You are just as vulnerable to pathogens as anyone else.
You do not have food poisoning.
