Thanks for your responses. I did try the SCD for about
10 days while I was really bad with bleeding and diahorreah and I think it helped. I pretty much only ate chicken soup and farmers cheese the whole time. I've ordered the book and will think about
going on the diet longer term once I've read it.
There are also some really good products such as the Atkins Baking Mix (great for pancakes). There is a company called EMPOWER that makes low carb products including bread mixes, cake mixes, wraps, sauces etc. They are great for helping you stick to a low carb diet as they add variety to your menu. But a word of warning. I'm pretty sure the bread mix either brought on or contributed to my recent UC flare. The flare started about
2 weeks after starting to eat the bread. My sister also has UC and it worsened rapidly once she started eating the bread. I think it's because it's made of really high fibre stuff like psyllium husk and flaxseeds. So now I just use the wraps and sauces and steer clear of the other products. The Atkins baking mix has been okay.
This is the only time I've ever thought that my diet was a cause of my UC, nothing has ever bothered me before.
