I was diagnosed with Crohn's disease earlier this year. Looking back, I had symptoms for years. Bought a ton of books, talked to a bunch of people, and read as much as I could get my hands on (including this website) to educate myself about this disease.
Followed Inna's advice...cut out fruit/sugar for a month and a half. Cut out bread and other grains. This seemed to help quite a bit. I still eat lower carb diet, although I do eat rice occasionally and quinoa regularly. My diet is still rather limited, but I hope to begin incorporating more salads (used to eat one a day), Ezekiel bread, and beans (great source of protein and fiber) in my diet. Right now, I stick to cooked veggies, protein, 2-3 servings of fruit, healthy fats, baked goods with almond flour, small amount of carbs.
I take plenty of probiotics, fish oil, glutamine, multi-vitamin, etc. I feel much better than I did when diagnosed, although still not 100%. I'm not on meds - doc was ok with this approach. But, after reading a ton, I've learned that Crohn's normally starts off mild and eventually causes problems due to chronic inflammation (over time develop strictures, fistulas, abscesses - this is the normal course of disease). I wonder if I would be better off adding 5-ASA or another med to keep me in remission and control inflammation. Doc says there isn't a lot of evidence to support 5-ASA altering the course of the disease.
Anyways, really appreciate all the good information on this site!
