Ulcerative colitis can be controlled with diet changes to a significant level.
Medication alone wont help.
Try to observe which foods cause the flare and avoid them. Each person has different triggers.
Reasearch on what diet will help control symptoms

There are other monoclonal antibodies available.
Like cimzia .. Consult your doctor regarding a change in regimen.
