Final Thoughts on Living With Ulcerative Colitis

Taking your medicines, managing stress, seeking support, and making other dietary and lifestyle changes can all help you feel better. However, ulcerative colitis can't be cured (except with surgery).

You will also probably need to see a medical professional regularly to monitor your condition and decrease the chances of complications (see Ulcerative Colitis Complications).
