Hi Trixy’s Got Butt Trouble, quick question… Low carb diet list why would you increase your meds / switch to a more powerful one if you basically have no symptoms except for a bit of blood and mucus now and then (unless I didn’t understand correctly).

1-2 BMs per day with no pain/urgency and formed stool and just a bit of blood and mucus would almost be considered remission by some of us on this forum….

I would taper the pred and add a mesalamine–there are others (like apriso) that are delayed-release so they target the lower colon. Best diet without exercise I’ve found that the newer mesalamines (delzicol, pentasa, apriso) work much better than asacol or lialda.

I’ve never been told (had UC 13 years and 8 different GI’s) to stop my mesalamines, other things have always been added but mesalamines are constant. Weight loss home remedies I’m sure there are reasons to discontinue them, but I wouldn’t toss them to thecwayside just because asacol–the oldest and least evolved–didn’t work anymore.

Currently: Humira, Apriso, Uceris foam enema, Prednisone 25mg and tapering 5mg/week, Buproprion, Synthroid
