Ask about additional supplements
While your provider will likely still have you taking some UC medications to get everything under control, ask him or her about additional supplements. Some people with UC have been able to alleviate some of their symptoms by taking things such as fish oil and probiotics. Just be sure to talk to your healthcare provider before incorporating any new supplements into your life. Just because it is natural does not mean it is safe. Many supplements can interact with medications or have other side effects. Ultimately, UC is a chronic disease that requires many different types of treatment for people to enter remission, and the treatment process should involve the guidance of a trained healthcare provider.
