Veggies always make me have more bowel movements. You might try cutting them out for a few days and see what happens. I hope someone else on here can be of more help.

Take Care,

Veggies, especially raw always make me run and often cause pain. I love juice, especially orange juice, but the acid makes my intestines hurt and causes me to go to the bathroom. It seems strange that the "healthy" food often causes me to have more problems than greasy food. I am not advocating eating poorly, I just have to find other ways to get the good nutrition. Good luck!!

Raw veggies would send me straight to the ER. I think the advice above about avoiding them for a few days is good. See if that helps.

Well, I'm no expert on CD and flares, but I am an avid juicer. My son tolerates it very well, but everyone is different, that's for sure.

If you have a centrifugal or masticating type juicer, you are getting very little fiber from the veggies. Very little. This is the beauty of juicing, imo, for Crohn's folks; all the nutrients without all the roughage. Also, I don't *believe* veggie juice would be high in acid (except tomato, I think), so that may not be your issue. Just making a case for juicing!

As for all the raw veggies you're eating, well I don't know what to tell you there. Other folks here probably know better about that! Maybe stop it all for a bit and then slowly re-introduce the juice? Also, check the veggies you're using to see what their acid content is? Just a thought!

Good luck!

If it were me, I would cut back before I cut out the fruits and veggies, it could be that you're just having too much, and it would likely be better if you increased slowly to find a comfort zone in how much you can handle in a day...good for you for eating/drinking healthier though! I hope this means you're cutting back on junk-foods, processed foods, refined sugars, ect (that is if you were/are eating alot of those) these types of foods/beverages can exacerbate CD symptoms.

My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it!  LOL  :)

thank you for your replies
I am cutting a bit of veggies...I try not to eat any junk food and sugar..I just want to be healthier and exercise regularly.
I am in alot of pain and I am thinking really hard if I should withdraw from the study of oriencia ( abatacept) so I can take prednisone...I've never taking this drug....but man o man am I in so much pain.Actually feb 13 I might be eligible to be on open label wich mean I'll be taking the drug.If my score(CDAI) is much lower than I started I'll be in maintenance wich mean I have 50% chance of taking the drug or 50% taking the placibo for a year.right now nobody knows if I am taking the drug or not.I'll know more on feb 13th.
thank you
