I had been feeling abdominal pain in upper left side. My doctor diagnosed Ulcerative colitis. It seems I will be on steroid treatments for a while. I will be grateful if someone can provide me more information about this disease. Thanks.

Ulcerative colitis is a condition in which lining of rectum and colon becomes progressively ulcerated. That causes periodical pain on the (upper) left side of abdomen. Cause is not known but condition can be aggravated by antibiotics, and steroids like in your case. In severe cases, steroids and nutrients may have to be given intravenously to rest colon and allow it to heal. You can help yourself with high-fiber diet and reducing diary products. Stop smoking too.
