Treating Colitis: "Diet doesn't cause ulcerative colitis, and special diets can't cure the disease," says Walter J. Coyle, MD, director of the Gastrointestinal Program at Scripps Clinic Medical Center. "But it can help to avoid foods that your body has trouble tolerating or foods that irritate your bowels."

"Some patients do well on a low-fiber, low-residue diet, but every patient is different," says David T. Rubin, MD, co-director of the Inflammatory Bowel Disease Center at the University of Chicago.
