I haven't had health insurance for about a year. I joined a medical study to help cover some bills that I can't pay on my own as a result when I started passing blood (again) I was to report it to the study. When I did they paniced and paid for a colonoscopy and everything else. It came back as uc. I went ahead then and went to get on government assistance. I went to enroll in my manged care plan today and when I told her I have uc and am supposed to see a specialist she said since I'm 22 I don't qualify to see any specialists. The only ongoing things they cover are surgeries or pregnancies, not autoimmune or anything like that. I wanted to say so if I had a brain tumor and required to see a cancer specialist it wouldn't be covered and I would die, but I didn't. I figured perhaps I could go see a doctor when I begin passing blood again and go through everything all over again but my mom said that it probly wouldn't work since they already know now. So I was just wondering if it's possible to deal with it without medical assistance. I know several suggest a book but I don't have a juicer and it appears that seems to be a major part of the books suggestion. I seem to flare once even twice a month and that lasts 3-4 days to 10 days so suggestions would be helpful or any advice

She is in excellent shape, really exercises a lot, and eats well... not at all overweight. Anyone else have any issues with this? I did find that it can go with PKD. She was reading that there are...
