Is There A Connection Between Ulcerative Colitis And Celiac?
Posted 10 August 2008 - 02:56 PM
My friend (who is TammyK; I don't have my own username yet) has told me about Celiac Disease and to look into it as a possible connection. Does anyone else out there have both Celiac and UC and know how they are related? I have noticed multiple food sensitivities but as time goes on, I am getting more and more confused about which bother me. I have NOT noticed gluten to effect me, but haven't excluded it either, except while I was on a Candida diet and when I was on a liquid diet during a severe UC flare-up.
Yesterday it flared-up again, out of the blue. I have no idea what brings them on and having no idea how to correct them without Prednisone.

Have you tried an elimination diet? If you do an elimination diet you can usually pinpoint foods that are affecting you. once you pinpoint one food, don't stop. Eliminate that food and put it on the bad list. Keep adding foods to the diet one at a time because you may have several food sensitivities. Start with a basic rice diet. Add other foods every few days and note the symptoms.
