Does anyone have any experience with the SCD diet and it's relation to Crohn's symptoms? Or can someone point me to a post that may have previously asked this question? (BTW my most annoying symptoms are average 5-25 water-ey BMs a day, which urgency to go, and abdominal pain usually relieved by going to the bathroom)

Everything in moderation, be thankful everyday, and be the most honest I can be. If I can look in the mirror at the end of the day and say I have done these things, I am happy.
 
Drugs I have tried: Pentasa, Entocort/Imuran, Prednisone, Remicade
 
Drugs I am on: None for Crohn's, Predisone for drug induced Psorasis
 
What I need: A bowel resection

that sounds like uc to me I've had cd for 40 years, one of my resection surgeries, my last one actually was 1989, i shared a room with a uc guy, and he was in bad shape, he was going 20-30 times a day lost a tremondous amount of weight, do you have cde as well? I'm at a loss what to tell you I met a dude from this forum his handle was dirty harry and he was on scd diet, med free for 2 years, and the last they told him was he was going to loose his colon then he went on to that diet, changed his life, most cd'er have slight constipation issues because of either swollen intestines or scar tissue build up

I'm a proud SCDer of 14 1/2 months :-). I highly recommend joining http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/BTVC-SCD/
. There are many seasoned SCDers there willing to answer any questions you have. Good luck!

Hi lero3645! We often have discussions here about the SCD, but as spookyhurst said, the yahoo group is great!

Below in my signature are a couple of discussion threads on the SCD. Click on them if you want to read some previous posts by folks doing the diet.

art,
It is common in severe crohns to have 30+ d's in a day.

Sam,
I am a big believer in a multiprong approach to this disease. Meds, diet, etc. Please be aware that this is a highly individualized disease and what works for one person doesn't always work for another. I encourage you to do your research and try things out, also please be aware that it can take months for some of these treatments to work.
TC,
Navy

Hey Sam,
 
Welcome to Healingwell.  I don't think I have had the opportunity to meet you yet.  I personally feel much like Navy that diet and meds should be considered as complimentary of eachother.  I personally find the SCD diet too restrictive for me, but it works well for others.  I follow a modified low residue diet (you can google it) all the time and it works well for me.  I am currently in remission, but one thing for me at least, that has never changed is that I do best if I stick with this diet.  I hope you find something that works well for you.
 
Hugs
