Hi Ashyla03, I found out I had Crohn's 3½ years ago during an emergency resection. I was put on Prednisone and developed steroid-induced diabetes. I struggled for quite a while with this dietary issue. I have been able to control both issues by just avoiding what makes me ill. So far, it's just mainly salad all by itself. If I have a salad as a meal I'm done. I eat lots of grilled chicken and fish. I'll also drink V-8 to get my vegetables. That doesn't seem to bother me.
I have to admit that my weakness is mashed potatoes. I haven't been able to give those up. My biggest comfort food. I just keep a close I on my BG. My HA1c has been holding steady at around 6.4 for 3 years now.
