Hello, my daughter has suffered terribly badly from Ulcerative Colitis for about 5 1/2yrs. In the first 19 months, she took Prednisolone on a regular basis as this was the only drug that managed to control it. As steroids is not a long term solution, she was on a 6-8 weekly Vedolizumab (one of the many biologics) infusions, which worked a treat for 3yrs allowing my daughter to lead a relatively normal life. Rather sadly, my daughter's colitis has become immune to the Vedolizumab and has now been prescribe Humira for the last 16 weeks, with anal enemas and steroids. Unfortunately, none of this is working. Additionally, she has also become rather bloated since being on Humira and has developed symptoms of a throat infection, incredibly dry skin and irritable eyes. We definitely do not want to go down the path of having an op.
My question is, does following a particular type of diet help? I would be very grateful for any suggestions that anyone can offer; holistic or medical.
