Re: UC and weight gain

I would guess your weight gain is a separate problem, unless you are on Prednisone for the UC. Since UC is an autoimmune disease, and many people have more than one AI disease, I would want to get my thyroid checked for Hashimoto's thyroiditis, another AI disease, that can cause an underactive hormone production and weight gain, fatigue, etc.etc. That just requires blood tests- thyroid hormone levels and thyroid antibodies.
