In brief: Communicate with GI
If you have been diagnosed with crohn's, you need a good gastroenterologist to reduce flares, avoid systemic consequences, survey for dysplasia, & maintain remission.
In choosing a GI specialist, find one with whom you feel comfortable fielding such questions as above. Discuss frankly options (step-up versus top-down therapy). Avoid precipitants of flares (medical noncompliance, tobacco, nsaid's.

In brief: Control
If your Crohn's is under good control, you shouldn't be having flare-ups.
Your doctor might want to rethink your medication regimen to prevent you from getting flare ups in the first place.
