Suggest treatment for ulcerative colitis

default
Posted on Thu, 23 Apr 2015
Question: I have had Ulcerative Colitis for last 30 years or so. I get flare ups twice a year. Sometimes proper diet gets me back on track. Sometimes Salofalk comes to rescue. The current flare up required 50mg. of Prednisone a day for 8 days to get it under control. The current prescription is 4 tabs of 1.2g of Mezavant and enema. Need less to say, I hate to take medication of any kind. Is there a health clinic or something similar in XXXXXXX where I can go and get properly analyzed as to what kind of food causes the flare ups and what foods are good for me? Over the years, I have learnt to avoid certain foods that I know have triggered the flare ups in the past. Thank you for your help.

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXX

Thanks for writing in
Saw your query unanswered for quiet some time
Have a feeling that most Gastroentrologist will refrain from advising a clinic which can help you as this is not a part of our curicullum
But I have been in practice for 27 years and mostly as a colorectal surgeon and have participated in five international clincal trials on Ulcerative collitis
I have few patients who have been to

Jindal XXXX Institute     
Jindal XXXXXXX XXXXXXX Road,
Bangalore-560 073 XXXXXXX
Tel: 91 - 80 - 0000 (6 lines),
Fax: 91 - 80 - 0000     
www.jindalXXXX.org

And have been comfortable with them, I took some time to get the contact details from one of my patients, but personally I do not have any experience with these type of clinic

I would suggest you continue medicine in maintainence doses and see these people

Hope this helps
