For some reason my ulcerative colitis behaves differently compared to many other people. I rarely have an aggressive flare after which I can lose 30 to 40 pounds in 20 days. But I wait until it passes and then remission comes with no symptoms for many years, and without a single pill. No food can trigger the symptoms to come back. I drink any alcohol, eat a lot of meat, drink coffee and nothing happens for years.

Biopsy from colon reports irritable bowel syndrome and ulcerative colitis. I am on Mesacol suppository daily and isabgol powder, yet frequency of stools is more than 15 to 24 hours.
