I have suffered with Chrone's disease for the last 10 years.  I have never been able to get it under control.  I am now pregnant with my third child and having a flare up.  I am curious if any of you have found a diet that works to keep thing under control.  Also what do you do when you notice you are about to have a bad flare up.  I am so tired of being on prednisone.  I know there must be another answer.

There are no guarantees, but some people do swear by certain diets.

You could try the SCD (specific carbohydrate diet) developed for people with Crohn's and UC, and is based on what was the original diet for people with Celiac's grains, no sugar (but honey is OK), no fluid milk (but aged cheese and homemade yogurt is OK), no processed foods (hot dogs, but meats, fish, poultry, eggs are OK), fresh or frozen fruits and vegies are OK (but not canned).  At you can find out more info about this diet. If you check out the book, "Breaking the Vicious Cycle" on the Amazon web site, you will see a lot of testimonials for SCD. It's a healthy way of eating, and might be worth a try. 

Some people swear by the Maker's Diet, which is similar to the SCD diet.

I wish I had known about these diets before my daughter was put on meds.

You can also check out an antifungal diet (kinda like the SCD and Maker's Diet) at  Look under FAQ section on the home page. It helped me get rid of all my symptoms of UC. Lots of other interesting info there, as well, about how fungus can be the etiology of a lot of our diseases.
