I eat a vegan diet for health reasons, the same reason I workout and dont smoke....but I ended up with UC anyway, lol. I probably should get tested for food intolerances, but Im afraid it will be soy or gluten or wheat because thats all I eat. Ive heard that what you eat doesnt cause UC and I believe it because I think it takes more than that to get your colon to look like mine. I guess maybe I would be better off if I ate foods that I wasnt intolerant of. Thanks for the tip, I will surely look into it :)
I was diagnosed with U.C. in early 2007. I am 30, single and no kids.
I am currently taking 4800 mgs of Lialda, 100 mgs of Imuran, 1000 mgs Canasa
Also I take:Propecia(hair loss), Trentenoin(acne), Paxil20mgs(depression), Allegra(allergies), Advair500/50&albuterol(asthma), multi-vitamins, b-complex, flax oil and biotin.
I (over)eat a vegan diet.
