Currently on quite a high dose of predisolone which I will gradually come off but the swelling has started. Now I'm feeling more human as my flare up is getting under control my appetite has gone through the roof on them as well. I know some swelling is inevitable but is there anyway of reducing it? or foods that can contribute or help with the swelling as I really have that classic moon face going on. Also any foods that aren't going to aggravate my colitis but keep my appetite at bay?
I drop loads of weight when I flare then pile loads on when I come out of it, my last flare I put on 2st 5 I don't want that to happen again!!!! Unfortunately my energy levels are still extremely low so exercise is also tough.
Any ideas much appreciated as really not feeling good about myself, I know in the great scheme of things this sounds quite shallow and whiney and the main thing is being well, but I guess it's easier to be optimistic when you feel good about yourself.
