Please continue with finding out more about diet.
After 10 years of surgery for UC I learned so much.
At York here in UK I had a hair analysis and allergy tests. It revealed everything my body had fought against. I learned to avoid all foods containing colouring additives etc. If only I had had this info when I had UC at 28years.
I stick to a healthy diet and for my age have no medication at all. The old saying with food eat food with nothing added or nothing taken away.
I think this will help.Good luck
