I did not use Modulen since it is hard to obtain here. I have used two other Nestle Products, Nutren and Peptamen. I was on Nutren exclusively for 8 weeks, and during that time I went into remission--probably after about
5 weeks. I felt very good and my bloodwork matched how I felt. Since then (last April) I usually have 1-2 cans a day and otherwise eat whatever I want within reason (I have a stricture).
I had a hard time staying in complete remission after stopping the diet, and did go on Entocort for a little while last summer. Most doctors here do not support enteral nutrition and they were not helpful regarding how to reintroduce foods either. You should talk to your doctor about trying an elimination diet when you start to reintroduce food. That would help you to determine what foods are triggering your disease/discomfort. You would need the assistance of a nutritionist.
Sticking to the liquid diet is easy while you don't feel good. It becomes much harder once you start to feel better! I recommend trying it for 8 weeks. If you have any specific questions I am happy to help.
