Ulcerative Colitis and Simple Carbohydrate Diet

Written by sshowalter.

Effect of Simple Carbohydrate Diet on Ulcerative Colitis

The Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD) is often recommended for those diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease, but can at times bring relief to some Ulcerative Colitis suffers. The SCD allows the consumption of carbohydrates that are monosaccharides (have a single molecule structure) which allow them to be more easily absorbed in the intestinal wall. Complex carbohydrates (disaccharides and polysaccharides) are not allowed as they can contribute to the inflammation of the intestinal wall. The diet helps to rid the gut of harmful bacteria and restore the healthy microorganism balance.1

Remember that no one diet has been proven to work for everyone, but you have the power to find out what works for your body and your Ulcerative Colitis. No two people’s constitutions are the same; specifics depend on the individual.
