Ulcerative Colitis- HELP!

Hi all,
It has been a long time since I’ve posted here.
I am 24 years old with ulcerative colitis for 1.3years ( I have been on mainly predisonale, azathioprine, pred-anemas, asocol, infliximab). I have a read the main thread posted on crohns/ colitis couple of years ago and have started to implement the SCD diet along with liquid probiotics/probiotic tablets (10 billion active cultures) daily and always having pea protein with rice milk to keep the muscle mass. Yet, I still have regular bloody stools/mucus, weight loss and nausea.

Below is a snapshot of my diet when I had a really bad flare:

    Odog,         
    I have tapered down on the yoghurt and started to implemented Quinoa. The drugs I am taking at the moment are;
    Predisonale (35 mg/daily),
    Azathioprine (150mg/ daily),
    Prednisone anemia (40mg/ twice daily),
    Iron sulphate (daily),
    Lansoprazole (daily),
    Mesalamine (4.8mg/ daily).

    One day hope to be drug free...

    James,
    Thanks for the thread very informative. I have taken key points from the thread and will start to implement in my diet. Fingered crossed I gain muscle mass!

    Atobagofan,
    At the moment, I am consuming loads of turmeric, cumin, garlic, manuka honey (20+), iron spa, probiotics (10billion active cultures- twice daily). Next week I may start the slippery elm, aloe aera as I want to see if what I am currently using is actually working or making a significant difference.  If not then I will move on the slippery elm, aloe vera. Thanks for the inspirational push-I needed that at this point in my life.

    Worth taking a food intolerance test? 
    I have been researching on food intolerance test through a well-known laboratory for any specific foods that I may be intolerant against such as milk, wheat, gluten and from this I could optimise my diet and potentially control the UC. Up till now, I have not had any food intolerance that I have known off- It costs on approximately £250. What yours views on this?  Do you recommend such test? 

    Thankyou for your replys,

    Hoggy!
