My mother seems to think that my "excessive protein intake" could have caused my moderate/severe ulcerative colitis. I've always lifted weights many times per week and eaten in excess of 160/170g of protein per day usually coming from chicken breast. I just want to know if this has any research of if anyone has ever heard of a problem like this. Apparently high protein causing high acidity levels in my gut? never heard of anything like this. I thought it was mostly just bad luck from the auto immune diseases.
