I have crohns and ulcerative colitis. They both hit at the same time, upon my research I have found being a Type 0 blood type, if I was eating food not right for my blood type this would be one of my health issues in the future, chronic inflammation. I am on Asacol 5, Azathioprine, Potassium. It took me approximately a year to get back to life. I avoid dairy, substitute with soy and calcium supplements. During that year, I also developed a pelvic blood clot due to immobility and I did fall. Now I exercise daily with weights and dog walks, but I have noticed my endurance is gone. I had lost 50 lbs in 2 weeks during my attack before being diagnosed. Muscle mass depleted. Not a way to lose weight. Now I am in a menopausal fog and will need to research that and gets tests done.
