Hi all,

Does Crohn’s effect the taste buds? I thought I read this somewhere and can’t help but notice there are many foods that I like that also don’t cause discomfort, and many foods I don’t like that I am reading do/would cause discomfort. Coincidence, perhaps.
I am a very picky eater …… and must shamefully admit I am hoping to be able to use Crohn’s as the reason I do not eat certain foods. I am often embarrassed to eat around others and would feel more comfortable if I knew/thought I don’t eat things (taste reasons) because of Crohn’s.

Thanks for reading

I don't believe they are directly related but I have no prove.  When you don't feel well certain foods just don't taste good.  Also if you are particular about what foods you do like, that would surely influence your choices.
