    My sister has had Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn's disease for more than 25 years. Over the years, there's been 2 main causes of flareups for her.

    The first is overdoing things. Very often she will have a flare after Xmas. She's very much a type A personality and doesn't know how to say no sometimes.

    The second is diet. After so many years, she knows what foods affect her negatively and tries to eliminate them from her diet.

    I'll see if I can find out what medications she's taken and how they've worked for her.

    Regards,

    Eileen

    Hi, a friend of ours has ulcerative colitis. I told him to give up all grains and diary. He tried it and it helped him alot. I also told him about the book called Breaking the Viscious cycle by Elaine Gottschall. It has great recipes for those with Ibd. I use it myself with great results . I have diverticulitis and Ibs. Good luck, Jess
