Diet and Nutrition in Crohn Disease (cont.)
IN THIS ARTICLE
Is my diet to blame for my Crohn's disease?
There is no evidence that diet has anything to do with causing inflammation or Crohn's disease. No matter what you ate in the past, it probably played no part in your having Crohn's disease today. Unfortunately, though, now that you have Crohn's disease, you may find that you can no longer comfortably eat certain foods you once enjoyed.
I have had food allergies for many years, and now I have Crohn's disease. Is there a connection?
There is no evidence linking food allergies with Crohn's disease. Experts now believe that many people thought to have food allergies may actually be experiencing early symptoms of Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, or similar digestive diseases.
