I have had this diarrhea now for over a year.  Diagnosed with crohns about 5 weeks ago. Have had lots of c.diff tests but all negative.  Still trying to figure out the cause of this.  Usually about 5-7 times a day.  Do you think it is still the crohns.  IF so, wouldn't I see a decrease in it since I am on meds for crohns??
Thanks
Chris

Hi Chris~
What meds are you taking for your Crohn's?  If you are not seeing improvement, then you need to talk to your doctor about other options.  Different meds work for different people.

I have had diarrhea for almost 40 yrs., since my first foot of ileum was removed. But I think a lot can be controlled by diet and meds. I could only tell I was flaring when the D got worse, and felt worse, because I don't get much abd. pain unless I obstruct . Some folks have tried adding fibre supplements or bile salt meds which can help.
