I know this topic is discussed ad-nauseaum, and I apologize. I NEED to follow some type of diet. To give you a little background, I have now developed Crohn's constipation. I take Miralax daily, which is helping some. However, some days I "don't" go, then other days I go large amounts. (not diarrhea, though, just many and frequent.)
So, my questions to you are:
1. What type of diet do you follow? ie. SCD, Maker's, gluten-free, low residue, high-fiber, etc.
2. Has it helped you?
3. Do you suffer from diarrhea, constipation, or both?
4. Do you find that sugar bothers you? (I am a big sugar drink junkie.... sodas and iced-tea.)
I don't want to do a diet that will bind me up more, but I have to do something.
Thank you so much in advance for your time. Blessings, Julie
