The best way to deal with the symptoms of UC (abdominal pain, diarrhea, poor appetite, bloody stools) is to take UC medications that decrease the inflammation in your colon. Some medications are delivered by mouth, others by enema, and others by IV or injection. The types of medications that are appropriate for you should be discussed with your GI doctor.

? Re how treat Ulcerative Colitis, UC. See a Gastroenterologist who specializes in UC. If symptoms persist despite therapies, ask the doctor if he would approve of the use of Cannabis. Do not use if he disapproves, and see a Cannabis Medicinal Consultant if he does approve. I have treated UC patients who have reported benefit from Cannabis.
