I was diagnosed with UC in 8/09. I had a pretty bad flair up that led to my diagnosis and have had severe joint pain for the last 2years that led to my docs starting me out on Humira. It has overall been very effective treating both the UC and joint pain. The problem is that prior to my diagnosis I ate only the South Beach diet...fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts, very low carbs, now I have a very hard time finding healthy food to eat, I feel like I'm always hungry and I've gained 20 pounds eating white flour, refined sugars, etc. Any suggestions?

Have you checked out the CCFA website?

There is some great info there including dietary suggestions....

I lost someone close to me who suffered from UC ( it wasn't from the UC that she died) I know how difficult it can be to deal with this disease.

Best of luck to you...
