Crohn’s Disease: Diet and Nutrition
WebMD March 10, 2011: Because Crohn’s disease affects the gut and symptoms often occur after meals, you may wonder if certain foods cause or contribute to the disorder.
At this point, we don’t have an ideal diet for Crohn’s, but we do know that certain types of foods can make symptoms worse or better. To help ensure that you are eating a balanced diet and getting enough calories while avoiding symptoms, you can take these steps:
* Eat smaller meals and eat more often. Instead of eating three large meals, eat five small meals.
* Avoid high-fat, greasy, and fried foods such as cream sauces, butter, margarine, and anything deep dried. About one-third of people with Crohn’s find these foods harder to digest because they have difficulty digesting fat.
* Avoid dairy: milk, cheese, ice cream, cream sauces, yogurt, cheese.
* Keep a food diary. This can help you determine which foods, if any, irritate your stomach more than others.
* Try eating a softer, blander diet, rather than anything spicy and high in fiber during flares. This may cause less discomfort. Just be sure to eat a balance of vegetables. whole grains and fruit.
* Chronic diarrhea can lead to dehydration, making you feel weak and tired. It’s best to avoid soda and caffeinated beverages as they can irritate your stomach.And of course, be sure to consult your physician regarding Crohn’s Disease and before making dietary changes.
Dr. John McDougall says that the simple increase of the fiber content in the foods eaten has been shown to reduce the frequency of Crohn’s attacks and to improve symptoms in many patients. A starch-based diet, which is inherently high in fiber, is highly effective at alleviating the distress from this condition. One step further in effective therapy is to avoid the foods that most often cause allergies–dairy products, eggs, chocolate, wheat, and citrus fruits, as well as fats of all kinds.
