Our expert says:
Colitis is indeed a difficult condition to manage and I trust that your hubby is also receiving medical treatment from his physician? If not, do consult the physician again to find out if he can prescribe medications for the flare-ups, the bloating, pain, etc. Ulcerative colitis is a very tricky condition to treat and it requires constant supervision by a registered dietitian. Visit the Association for Dietetics in SA Website at: www.adsa.org.za and click on "Find a Dietitian" to find a dietitian in your area. The dietitian will have to work out an individual diet prescription for your hubby that takes his condition, the phase it is in (during flare-ups the diet needs to be changed considerably), any medications he may be taking, and his food preferences into account. This is not something I can do for you over the Internet. If you do a Search on the Health24.com site with 'Ulcerative colitis' you should find articles about this condition, which provide additional information.
