Diet & UC has been discussed here several times.
So far we do not know:
1. is altered microbiom a cause ???
2. is altered microbiom a consequence ???
3. is there another hidden cause that causes UC and alters microbiom ???
Some research papers suggest that particular diet can be helpful (for example PBD, SCD)
but the evidence is weak. It is not easy to conduct double blinded randomized trials on diets.
We human beings have evolved to prosper on wide variety of diets during evolution. I thing we
should avoid extremes and listen to our bodies. Nearly everybody has some kind of food intolerance.
It does not make sense to eat food that bothers you even if it is super healthy food.
