are you eating the fruits and veggies raw or have you tried cooked? did you have diarrhea when you ate this stuff before you were diagnosed since you are not in a flare now?
I drink V8, take multi vitamins and eat canned fruits and cooked veggies although I used to eat salads and fresh stuff ALOT before I got sick. Num Num gorgonzola and pear salad..... or southwest salad with corn.... or celery and pb <sigh>
I also eat a digestive enzyme before each meal and it helps with the gas and bloating. With time I have been able to eat fresh bananas, blueberries, melons fresh but still not the veggies but still in small amts.
I agree with the person that said to do slowly on the fiber. OMG I went from a low fiber diet when I was diagnosed and tried to eat steamed zucchini and about
died but I was also in a flare. so I went backward a bit and then started integrating back slow and taking metamucil and eating oatmeal and seem to be ok.
Can't give you tips to help you to slow down the D because I'm one of the Crohnies that have C more than D.
for the burning nawing hunger when I was on pred I took prilosec and since it knocked out the acidy feeling I didn't eat like I normally do. (I usually have asthma attacks in the spring so I normally throw down and eat everything in my site to try to get rid of that hunger)
