Greetings to All!  I was diagnosed w/ Crohn's in 2000, but God has been GREAT, and I've been in remission for about 2 years now.  While I was having flares, I had to eliminate corn, nuts, popcorn, and milk from my diet.  Well, about 2 weeks ago, I figured I'd give peanuts a try.  It had been sooooo long, and they looked sooooo good!  Anyway, I had what seemed like the beginning of a flare a couple of days ago, but it stopped after a day, but my right side is tender, and I've been having loose bowels for the past few days.  Could it be that the nuts have triggered something?  Does anyone eat their normal "forbidden" foods while in remission??  nono

I have been in remission for a few years now myself. I have to stick with a low residue diet all the time. That works best for me. I have had 2 resections also, so I really have to pay attention to what I eat even in remission. I usually can try to add in a few things not low residue, but will back off if they give me problems. Nuts/seeds usually do me in, so I think the nuts you ate kinda upset you, so I would take it easy for a few days and stay with the diet you have been using. I don't think you are flaring, just upset the apple cart with eating the nuts. Good luck!

Nanners, what happens when you eat something that is not low residue - like vegetables for example?
