Re: Ulcerative Colitis vs Chron's Disease
There aren't really any foods that bother me, per se. Initially, coffee had a BIG impact on my UC, specifically frequency (didn't cause anymore bleeding). Now coffee doesn't bother me.
I have heard from others that alcohol can aggravate it, too. I have never had that problem. Alcohol doesn't really do anything to my digestive track to irritate my UC.
Right now, after about 2 months of treatment with Lialda (1 pill a day; and Rowasa enemas), I'm in remission. My doctor said mine is mostly confined to the left side of my colon, as the transverse and descending colon are clear.
