Medication is important, too
There are many complications that can arise from UC and be potentially dangerous. Bleeding and diarrhea are two symptoms of UC that if not properly managed can become very problematic and even life-threatening. While lifestyle changes can certainly help you feel better on a daily basis, if you are still having frequent relapses, your large intestine will continue to take a hit. This can mean more damage that results in bleeding as well as increased water loss through diarrhea.
