Hey guys, I don't have Crohn's Disease, but I wanted to know if you guys can eat whole wheat cereals. I have some understanding of the disease and what the symptoms are.

Only if I want to bleed really bad, instead of just dripping blood.

But others are different, diet is very tricky with this disease....

I can usually eat them, yes. It's not one of my "trigger" foods. Everyone is so different when it comes to diet.

It really depends on the individual. I eat Honey Nut Cheerios, which has wheat in it, and I do just fine.

I can eat it sometimes. Last week I ate a handful of mini wheats and was sick for about 4 hours that night. Other times, I'll be fine.

I can eat whole wheat things when I feel well. It is a very individual disease. Occassionaly I get very crampy from whole wheat but it doesnt make me bleed.

I bring it up because there are cereals that promote digestive health that are really interesting. LiveActive for example, makes cereals like Mixed Berry Crunch and Nut Harvest Crunch that are make with real fruits and nuts, as well as whole wheat.

I can't have anything with seeds, nuts, "crunch" of any kind. I can have whole wheat bread but just plain old 100%whole wheat, none of those 7 grain things. Bagels are out of the question. I can have Cheerios from time to time....and can tolerate oatmeal.
I wish I could eat those granola, and oats and clusters, banana, blueberry crunch cereals, they look delicious but would put me in the hospital.
