My daughter LOVES raspberry juices. Ocean Spray, Wegman's grape raspberry, etc.  But, she gets tummy aches around the time she drinks it.  Does anyone else?  Can't see any seeds in the juice.  So we're not sure why...

    Could it be just that it's sugary? Maybe if you mix with half water it won't be so bad. I usually mix whatever I'm drinking (grape or cranberry juice, gatorade, etc) with half water so I don't have any problems. I like raspberry juice too! Hope your daughters feeling okay

    Yeah, could be it has too much added sugar or artificial sweetners, both can really exacerbate IBD symptoms, she's better off eating raspberries and drinking 100% natural juices with no sugar or anything added...Simply Orange is an excellent one and so is the presidents choice pineapple juice.

    I've also altered my diet (no junky stuff at all, processed, fast-foods, refined sugars, ect) and exercise regularly.
    I went from 30+ bloody BM's/day with lots of lower back pain to an average of 5/day no bleeding no back pain and completely formed stools, still have severe urgency issues.

    When I was really sick, my parents wouldn't let me drink any fruit juices. My dad said it was because of the level of acidity.
    The same reason applies to any dishes that contain tomato sauce.
    Also, I ate a pile of pineapple once and then I had a bloody BM that preceded a trip to the ER. To this day, my dad won't even have it in front of me. It may or may not have been the pineapple's fault, but who knows?
    I know it's plain, but it's best to stick with water because it's just safer.
    Diagnosed with typical Crohn's at 16.
    Got lucky with Asacol for a year, then even luckier with ten years of relative remission.
    Now abscesses and fistulas are having an "atypical" Crohn's party around my junk.
    My HMO refused the Remicade and now I could be going on Lialda or sulfa? blah

    Just oges to show that too much of anything may not be good...I eat pineapple daily and drink pineapple juice often with no issues, but I'm careful as to how much of it I eat in one sitting, not because eating too much of it causes me any issues just because I know that too much of anything might possibly work against you.

    MoobyDoo....my daughter just discovered she loves orange juice and drinks it all the time now...we are afraid too much is not good although she insists it doesn't bother her. But, she is still having cramping and same symptoms. I often wonder where to draw the line when she tells me it's ok for her but I know a gallon of OJ a day can't be good for her...in moderation, yes, maybe.
    She is the one with crohn's and she is the one that can listen to her body but she is still young and I wonder about the decisions she makes...is that bad???
    We are thankful though that she is eating and enjoying new foods.
    My 14 yr old daughter has Crohn's. Diagnosed March 08. Currently taking Imuran and Pentasa. Also probiotics, Vit D and C supplements, Omega 3, folic acid, calcium.

    Guess different food affect everyone differently huh? Tomatoes seem to be a common no-no tho. Wonder if she will be able to have them (pizza!) again someday if she hits remission on 6MP. As for the juices, the recent one we found that she loves is a Wegman's 100% juice blend of grape and raspberry. I guess I was figuring since it is, or claims to be, 100% juice then it might be okay. We nixed the Ocean Spray Cranberry Raspberry because we figured it had too much sugar for her.  Sheesh. This is getting sooooo hard to find things she can eat.

    Hint for pizza: Always order it with "light sauce." That way, it's really just crust and cheese, with a tiny bit of tomato sauce adding a nice hit of pizza flavor.
