Tanzi Posted May 1, 2017 Author Share Posted May 1, 2017 There have been studies done on how smoking (cigarettes) can minimize flare ups with UC. My doctor joked that it's the only time smoking is beneficial...but it will kill you in other ways. My mom is dying from lung cancer right now...she smoked in her 20's. Has your flare up passed yet? I am so sorry to hear about your mom faraday. My heart goes out to you. I am half way through a course of steroids and although my symptoms have improved they aren't yet under control completely. Usually, the steroids take effect straight away. I am tapering off now so I'm not sure what is going to happen. It just feels like it is going on forever. Link to comment
