I found out I had Crohn's in August of '06. I was immediately put on Pred which gave me steroid induced diabetes within 2 months. Talk about
a total life altering existence. 6 months later I found out Crohn's gave me kidney stones so another diet was ordered. It took a long time for me to adjust my eating habits to keep blood sugar steady, crohn's in remission and kidney stones small.
