Colitis diet

Colitis is inflammation of the colon. It can be caused by things such as infection, radiation and poor circulation. Another cause are autoimmune conditions like Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, which affect about 1.6 million Americans.

Generally, foods that have a rough, scratchy texture that can scrape our intestinal lining are best avoided. Also, avoiding foods that are otherwise irritating to the intestines can help.
