I was diagnosed in my mid-30s and had symptoms probably back when I was in my late 20s. Some tips I can offer is to:
1) Keep a journal of what you eat and write down any such effect it has on you or how you feel after eating that food (so do not consume tons of various foods at one sitting, because then you cannot adequately track its effects. Therefore, you can track what foods may trigger your symptoms.
2) Refrain from consuming to much carbs and sugar.
3) Supplement with vitamin d, collagen, and a high profile probiotic.
I recently was diagnosed with the disease. Was curious on what things to avoid eating and any other helpful info. This is all new to me including opening up to others about it. Since I find it embarrassing to discuss. But guess ill give this a try!
Hello @PAHunter, thank you for your comment, I've taken the opportunity to move it to this pre-existing discussion to keep the conversation going.
Hi everyone, what advice can you all share about living with UC? How do you manage flare-ups? Is there a special diet you follow? What would you liked to have known when you were first diagnosed?

I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis about 5 years ago. I am taking the medication called Canasa (an anti-inflammatory) to help.
However, I have been having some flare-ups moderately. There can be weeks were I am flared up the whole week.
I am curious as to what other take to help manage the flare-ups. I am wanting to reduce the flare-ups as best as I can. Any recomendations, food, supplements, herbs, etc.?
Thanks in advance
