Went searching around last night into Crohn's News  Canada and found a video on nutrition . I was surprised to see the importance of protien and it's effect on the healing process of the intestines. Of course it mentioned the other things we lack as far as vitties go .I had slacked off on my vitties so I started them again last night. I should be feeling like a new woman soon or at least hope to. Be getting out mowing again soon so lots of vitamin D on the way. Do you find you take your vitamins on a regular basis? Are there other slackers out there? lol gail

Hi gail,

I talked to a doctor (he's an OB) who said that he can actually tell the type of diet women have when he has to repair episiotomy incisions. The skin tissue of women who eat well sews up very nicely. The skin/tissue of women who eat poorly doesn't hold the stitches as well and the repair is not as nice. He calls the poorly nourished women "potato chips and coke bottom". He'll say to a nurse "Well, here's another potato chips and coke bottom!" He he he So what you are saying about protein and good nutrition is absolutely true. We are what we eat.

Fish and chicken are 2 great sources of high protien and usually well tolerated for a crohnies gut.

Hi Yes the video I watched did mention the effect the vitamins had on the skin and the percentage and lack of foods that IBDer's don't get something like 80%. Now don't quote me here because I was at the end of my day and ready for sleep by the time the video downloaded. Anyway I didn't know it effected the surgical sewing of things. lol gail
