Just want to share what I have been through with this disease. I have had ulcerative colitis for 20 years. I was in remission till last year when I started having shortness of breath. I went to pulmonary doctor who treated me for pneumonia. After treatment was done a CT was done. It showed it had gotten worse and a biopsy was done. It showed that the autoimmune disease had spread to my lungs.
I then was put on steroids for 6 weeks.
I went to an allergist who found I was allergic to 23 foods. I cut them out of my diet and have had much improvement.
When I returned to pulmonary doctor he could not believe it. The inflammation was almost gone.
I just wanted to share this in case someone else may have this. We really have to look at the foods we eat and how autoimmune disease is effected by this.
