    Colitis Flare?

    I have been on the toilet since 12:30 AM. I was diagnosed with microscopic colitis in June and started taking a reduced dosage of entocort due to the steroids and my being diabetic. It helped tremendously but the side effects were miserable. My doctor switched me to Lialda - 2 each morning. The first week I did great and now this. Does one experience a flare even while on medication to quiet the symptoms? Do you stay on medication for the rest of your life? Hopefully, some of you can give me some answers. I won't stray far from the facility today since I had to call in sick to work. I will now begin the task of cleaning the carpet in my bedroom where I was unable to make it in time last night. How should I know what to eat and does that really make a difference. I have had Type 1 diabetes for 35 years so my diet is fairly consistent. Help - anyone!
