Just been diagnosed with UC.  Working with Dr now on treatment options.  First, found out there seems to be no cure.  Second, the meds are awfully expensive, third, has any found a medication that seems to have worked for them.

I'm sorry to hear about your diagnosis of UC. It's good that you're working with your doctor on Connections Wordle treatment options. While there is no known cure for UC, there are medications available that can help manage the symptoms and control the disease. The cost of medications can vary, but there may be options such as generic versions or assistance programs to help with affordability. It's important to discuss these concerns with your doctor. As for medications that have worked for others, it varies from person to person. Different medications may be more effective for different individuals. Your doctor will be able to guide you in finding the most suitable treatment for you.

The treatment for 2048 UC often involves a combination of medications, lifestyle changes, and, in some cases, surgery. The choice of treatment depends on the severity of your condition.

I don't know what your symptoms might be but I have had extreme pain and bleeding for the longest and Humira has helped manage it, I still get my symtoms but not to the extreme like I use to.

Dear newly diagnosed,

Have you looked at open-label/non-blinded clinical research drug-therapy studies in your area?  This will help pay for all your meds and you are followed closely by a GI specialists.

Thank you,

Entyvio infusions work well for me. Should be paid for if ordered by your GI Dr. Mayo Clinic put me on it in 2019. They transferred my care to Dr. back home. MediCare is my insurance.
