Our expert says:
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 you that takes your condition, the phase it is in (during flare-ups the diet needs to be changed considerably), any medications you may be taking, and your food preferences into account. This is not something I can do for you over the Internet. Do a Search on the Health24.com site with 'Ulcerative colitis' to read more about this condition.
