Do You Need to Change Your UC Management Plan?
If you have ulcerative colitis, you might be wondering, “Can life with IBD get better?” or “Is this as good as it gets?” These are questions that many people with the condition ask themselves — and too often, it can be hard to determine the answer.
That’s because ulcerative colitis can affect every part of your life, and self-care involves so much more than picking up a prescription from your doctor. Which is why it’s important to take a moment to reflect and ask yourself how well-controlled your condition really is — and where you might be able to make improvements.
To help you identify whether you need a change of treatment — or simply need to put renewed focused on other areas of your care — we’ve assembled these six assessments, which look at how much ulcerative colitis is affecting your?health, stress, body image, and well-being; if your?treatment plan?is working for you; and what your?food choices?mean for your health.
You don’t have to settle for “good enough” ulcerative colitis care. Check-in with yourself, then schedule a checkup with your doctor to discuss the results.
