What are diet changes for ulcerative colitis?

ANSWER

While food doesn't appear to play a role in causing ulcerative colitis, certain foods may cause more symptoms when your disease is active. Your doctor may tell you not to eat some foods, depending on your symptoms. He may also recommend vitamins or nutritional supplements.
