my great grandma had coliitis, at least that they calledit, not sure she was ever actually diagnosed with that, but she had serious stomach problems, and my Dad also, not nearly as bad as UC, but he just gets these random attacks of stomach cramps and nausea and D. Anyway, when i was alittle baby i had problems for a while, and they did all kinds of tests, and found no problems. Then until i got to be 22 i had no problems, then it started full on!
my son is 2 and like everyone said, any time something happens i freak! we have discovered that if he has too much dairy he gets loose poo, and if that goes on too long, he gets mucous and blood. I pray that it is not UC, Dr thinks it is from the dairy, so we just cut back and he is fine. but i don't know how I would live with myself if i gave him this horrible disease. The one thing i do know, is that if I find out he has it, his colon is coming out and quick, i won't let him suffer like i did, but until then i just pray he won't get it
