Suffering from ulcerative colitis. Can i ask doctor online?

I suffer from ulcerative colitis since 3 years now and it is in a remision state now ,but I was wondering if a HCG drops diet program would affect that especially that I have experienced a very active state with pregnancy so since HCG works based on the idea of the pregnancy hormone will that repeat the activation again of the ulcerative colitis again???

HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

There are a number of hormones that are elevated in pregnancy and also other changes that could impact on the severity of ulcerative colitis.

In terms of HCG specifically, there are not enough medical research studies to determine the effect of this diet on your condition.
It would be best to speak to both your doctor and a nutritionist to determine if it is likely to aggravate the ulcerative colitis.

I hope this helps
