I have been researching ways to help with my UC symptoms. There is a pill called AloeElite and a drink called Aloe Vera King that I wanted to try. Does this really help?

Hello anonymous and thanks for writing about UC. Have you been formally diagnosed with the condition? And has your doctor prescribed medication? If so, have you talked with your doctor about whether these products may conflict with your current treatment plan?

You may also want to contact one of the following organizations (provided by NIH) to find out if anyone has experience with the products you're referring to:
