My DH is awaiting investigation at the moment, symptoms include having regular loose stool (which has apparently been going on since before the start of the year but he's not mentioned prior to it worsening lately), stomach cramping (occasional) and last night, passing some blood (not enough to warrant a trip to a&e). He spoke to a 111 GP who suggested it may be UC and he'd need a full work up via his GP; he has a face to face appointment this afternoon. He has another AI condition, so I'm not sure whether this potentially makes him predisposed to others (?) But I'm preemptively trying to wrap my head around what it may mean, especially on a diet front, as I want to be able to help as much as I can from the off.
I know there isn't one fixed answer to this as everyone's experience, severity and triggers will be individual, but can anyone tell me how they manage their diet if they or a family member have UC? Meals, drinks, what to avoid, can alcohol be drunk (in moderation) and so on?
Happy to provide a rough outline of what we currently eat and drink if it helps.
