been awhile since I posted.
My question relates to the blood sugar level and crohns-relationship to diabetes. Is it possible crohns is the opposite of diabetes, namely hypoglycemic or hyper whichever would apply. idea
As when a acid dump occurs there is burning in the bowel. would that suggest having frequent smaller meals or proton pump approach.

I see a members list page but is there a page for possible cures?

I am 3 years now with illeostomy and thought I come to say hi. doing well. tongue

Have you been tested for diabetes, and shown that you have low blood sugar, or is this a hypothetical question?

I stay away from sugar, as do most people with Crohn's. I heard someone call it the opposite of hyperglycimia sp?. Crohn's and Diabetes would definitely be terrible together, but as far as I know I have never met or heard of anyone that had both. Def. get tested if you are worried about it though.

I know there are people with both crohns and diabetes and there are hyper/hypoglycimias as well.
So I do not know if that helps, but just fyi.

I have crohns so the question was sort of hypothetical for diabetes relationship hence my question I thank you for the responses. as my theory that if [emphasis added} diabetes was related to crohns and [if] it was opposite, would that be a possible approach to remedy it. I find interesting that a response reflects having both so that would seem to say that crohns is not an opposite condition of diabetes. If I may pursue it further however,,if you dont get insulin then you reach a condition of acidolysis in diabetes which I wanted to know if symtoms of acidolysis were similar to crohns. Thank you for letting me articulate that perhaps a bit better.

Yes, I have both, but I was on a lot of prednisone (60 mg per day) prior to developing diabetes. Trying to follow both diets is tricky, and recently I had a kidney stone removed and have to limit my "animal protein."  Would love to eat lots of salads and lose weight, but the CD doen't like fiber. Oh, and I did read that kidney stones and Crohn's are often related.
Take care. Lois
