“Can cutting down on sulfur-containing amino acids help prevent ulcerative colitis symptoms?” This is one of the questions posed by Dr. Greger in this Nutrition Facts video from 2015. The doctor discusses the success some people with ulcerative colitis (UC) have experienced in reducing flares by changing their diet and eliminating certain food groups.
For some, eliminating dairy helped to bring them into remission, while other reported eliminating meat and alcohol had a better effect. Dr. Gregor recommends UC patients limit the amount of meat they eat to once a week and advises them to consider an elimination diet to find out which foods trigger their UC flares.
