I was diagnosed with UC about a year ago.. After I started a treatment plan I noticed that some very noticeable symptoms were completely gone. That was a month and a half ago. I was using the treatment incorrectly and stopped using the suppositories when things cleared up. After I started using my treatment again, some of the symptoms are back along with the horrible cramping in my stomach and lower abdomen. I stopped taking the suppositories because of the cramps I was getting. I know that there is no way to prevent the full damage of a flare up but I am wondering what I can do about the side effects of the suppositories or the possibility of a change in my diet..? I have already looked into it but I am looking for more answers..View Thread
