SO you both feel that these signs are simply related to foods, just like any of us can have from time to time? My problem is, I wish I could know what the tell tale signs of the disease getting active and progressing are. I suppose it's worry. Thanks very much for your responses. Tom.
A lab test can check her inflammation levels, such as CRP and sed rate (ESR), to see whether her Crohn's is active. CRP tends to react sooner than sed rate in response to bowel inflammation, and so it rises earlier than sed rate. My daughter's pediatrician was able to do a sed rate blood test right in his office.
