When I was first diagnosed with CD the Dr. told me to not eat read meat. Then 8 years later they said you could eat meat just no dairy. Times have changed and we now know a little more. Nothing we eat causes a flair but everyone is very differant in terms of tollerance levels. My father has Crohn's and he can eat a whole bowl of ice cream no problem. If I ate regular ice cream I would be visiting Johnny all night and the next day. You should think about
food. I agree with Matthew. Keep a diary and write down the food you ate that day along with how you felt that day and the following. Look back at it and you may discover some foods that are not agreeing with you. If you take out those foods and find your pain is even slightly better the time is well worth it now and down the road. However don't be afraid to try a bowl of ice cream once in awhile as in time you may develop a tollerance. Not a lot of answers but I do believe thinking about
what you eat is the right thing. Hope you feel better soon
