Crohnís Disease

Also indexed as:Granulomatous Ileitis, Ileocolitis, Regional Enteritis
A full feeling in your stomach, accompanied by abdominal pain and regular bouts of diarrhea, may be signs of Crohnís disease. According to research or other evidence, the following self-care steps may be helpful.

The right diet is the key to managing many diseases and to improving general quality of life. For this condition, scientific research has found benefit in the following healthy eating tips.

RecommendationWhyGet started
Fill up on fiber, not sugarA high-fiber, low-sugar diet has been shown to be beneficial in people with Crohnís disease. Doctors often suggest eliminating all sugar (including soft drinks and processed foods) from the diet.
Focus on fruits and veggiesA diet high in animal protein and fat (from foods other than fish) has been linked to Crohnís disease. People may benefit from eating less meat and dairy fat and more fruits and vegetables.
Try a hypoallergenic dietHypoallergenic diets have been used as a therapy in people with Crohnís disease, although more research is needed to confirm any benefit.
Uncover your food allergiesSome people with Crohnís disease have improved after avoiding allergenic foods. Common culprits are grains, dairy, and yeast. An elimination diet can help uncover your sensitivities.
Look at certain foodsNuts, raw fruit, and tomatoes were reported in one study to be problematic for people with Crohnís disease, though other reports have uncovered reactions to different foods.
Avoid fast foodPeople who eat fast foods at least two times per week may more than triple their risk of developing Crohnís disease.
