Diagnosis Oct 07 and then Aug 08: 2 Patches of Mild Chrohn's Colitis with no GranulomaMedication: 4000mg Pentasa a day, 5mg Clipper Steroid (Beclometasone dipropionate)
I myself am trying to figure out this disease having been diagnosed only 2 years ago. I've had only two major flares (the first led to the diagnosis) and when I think back, the whole week or two before everything went to H***, I ate more fast food than usual, and I had also been drinking coffee on a regular basis (which I usually don't do).
When I am feeling well, I can tolerate anything. When I am sick, my "go to" foods are mac n cheese, jello, and oatmeal. I can't tolerate anything other than water as far as liquids go when I am ill, but like I said, when I am well I can tolerate anything (except coffee and too much fast food apparently.) Good luck on figuring out how this disease affects you. I have found this website to be extremely helpful. Even though I don't post very often, just reading what others go through helps me understand what I am going through that much more. It's also great to know you're not alone, and it's nice to hear real people talk about it not just doctors.
Good luck and keep us posted!
