1. Ulcerative Colitis can flare up due to stress:
What most people don’t know is that Irritable bowel syndrome can act up without reason. It is not necessary that what you ate last night causes the flare.
2. Medicines are always needed:
Once we are in remission, and we feel well, we think about skipping the medications and soon let go. But soon the bowels flare up and IBD is back with a bang. This is an illness that requires close monitoring and touch with your doctor. Avoid messing with the prescription yourself since medications are often titrated to fit your dosage needs.
3. Water,Liquids & Fluids:
Drink up. Hydration is colitis is very important since stools can make you lose a lot of water from the body which is harmful to body’s overall health. But its also important to know the right fluids. Caffeine is an intestinal stimulant so by all means avoid teas, coffees, soft drinks and products containing caffeine.
4. Eating right:
While there is no harm in eating fruits and vegetables, pay attention to anything that is suspected of causing harm to the balance in your gut. Avoid eating heavy meals,instead opt for small meals 5 or more times a day.
5. Antibiotics & Infections:
If you are suffering from an infection, you might or might not need antibiotics. But make sure your doctor approves it, since certain antibiotics might not suit you and can cause a relapse. In such cases, a change of antibiotics might be necessary.
In the end what matters is that you are on the right treatment plan. Discuss with your doctor if you don’t find improvement in a few weeks or you can take second opinion offline or online on websites like Justdoc.
