It's been a long time since I've posted or replied. Got some good news last January. They say I'm in remission. Still have discomfort, but nothing like before. I guess this is as good as it gets!
Now, I have a new dilemma, and was wondering if any of my Crohn's friends are going through the same thing, and any advice on how to handle this. I have gained over 25 lbs. on this wonderful med, Asacol. I can't stand it! I'm so uncomfortable. So, I'm having thoughts of a low carb diet to jump start my metabolism. I had been excersing, walking 4 miles a day, (had only lost 5 lbs. in 3 months), and then I bought an eliptical. I sweat my butt off on that thing 30 minutes 3 days a week and didn't lose not one pound!
What do you think about Crohn's and a low carb diet?
