I remember some of you saying that you were not able to take multivitamins because they are too hard on your gut. I was wondering if you could give me some suggestions or experience on what has worked for you?
I was able to take them before, but I did notice my bladder became more active. I thought it was a natural side effect for anyone. I cannot take them at all now because of interstitial cystitis. The worst offenders appear to be multi, b vitamins, and c vitamin preparations. I really, REALLY need to be taking these. I also need calcium, but I'll have to research it a bit more.
I know that you can find these in things like eggs, spinach, walnuts, and milk, but I can only really eat eggs safely the majority of the time, and spinach and walnuts are so expensive....
I'm not supposed to have soy products either since they can cause a flare, and I have noticed a difference.
I'm just having a hard time making my Crohn's diet work with my IC diet, and I'm trying to a find a way to get all of my vitamins that Crohn's has drained.
Any suggestions would be great!!
Also, sad day, I cannot have chocolate at all now. I couldn't before, but cheating was worth it every once in a while. I've noticed it makes things really bad now.
Diagnosed with Crohn's in May of 2008.
