So here's the question I have for you all. When you do flare, do you just add rectal meds, increase your oral mesalamine, or both? How long does it take these changes to stop the flare? Do you change your diet? Have your flares changed at all over time?
So don’t really “flare” …maintenance dose of asacol HD and eating things in moderation (avoiding things that aggravate me) seem to keep everything under control.
Moderate dairy intake with very limited yogurt (seem to be intolerant of yogurts) … limited fried foods, gluten in moderation, avoidance of preservatives and I have completely eliminated alcoholic beverages and on those occasions when my gut feels “colitisy” eating white bread seems to be calming
