Poopy doop I'd interested to hear more about
what your GI said about
different types of UC depending on where the inflammatory markers are produced. Have you discussed this in other threads (so I don't take this thread off topic)?
I think an anti-inflammatory diet is a helpful approach for people with an auto-immune disease, and for health in general, but for many of us with UC diet alone won't get us into remission. I tried it in the early years of diagnosis. The GI that diagnosed me acknowledged that during a flare up people with UC are often less able to digest sucrose and lactose due to inflammation.
I try to avoid junk food, and eat calorie dense foods packed with nutrients when I'm badly flaring, to try to get the calories and nutrients in without pain.
Thanks for the carrot juice tip - you've reminded me that I can try to drink the nutrients I can't eat due to having to avoid high fibre at the moment.
