Most gi docs are getting away from using this
you can google CDAI

My score is 50 which is rediculous. It gives me a low score because I don't go to the bathroom alot. Well sorry, I don't have d 10 times a day, but I have gas, blood loss and weight loss.
Dx'ed in 1999. No surgeries.

Current meds: 25mg Methotrexate. 12.5mg prednisone. Udo's Choice Probiotics (30 billion).

Tried SCD, didn't work, now avoiding gluten and dairy.

Rider at one point in time mine was about 500. It is just is not the best indicator of crohn's disease.
