How to eat with Crohn's disease?

Crohn's diet ? When your crohn's disease is inactive, there are few dietary restrictions needed. When flaring however, the location of crohn's activity determines diet modification. If in the small bowel, consider cutting back on lactose & fatty foods, & add supplements to make up for vitamin & mineral malabsorptions. If colonic crohn's, avoid gut stimulants like caffeine, minimize alcohol, maybe add probiotics.
It depends. I agree with dr. Cattano's suggestions, and also have learned that each person is unique in terms of what foods are better tolerated than others. It's important, though, to avoid hard nuts and food like popcorn. These can iirritate as they pass through. Some people are adding turmeric to their diets, since it may have antiinflammatory properties. A few capsules/day or sprinkle on food.
