In brief: Discuss with GI MD

Treatment of anyone with an autoimmune disorder starts with stress reduction, proper diet and adequate sleep and rest.
Lack of any of these can worsen/bring out symptoms. Sometimes treatment involves biologics of which Humera is one, steroids, and 5-aminosalicylates if the colon and rectum are involved. The right medication choices need a discussion with your MD who knows extent of your disease.
