I have a problem with milk but not with any cheeses, creamers, or yogurt (odd it is). Milk give me abdominal pain but no bloody d. I just tapered down to zero predisone recently after being on it for about 5 months (had a really bad flare). Havent had bloody/mucus poo since being on predisone, just hope it stays that way. Foods that ache my tummy and i stay away from are milk, potato chips, fried foods, high carbo foods, ice cream. Thats all i can think of at the moment. Havent really been pushed to a flare up from food but extreme abdominal pain is close to one i would say. When i flare up mean no bloody d stools. During my last flare up couldnt hardly eat anything nor did i want to. Had no appettite and anything i tried to eat sent me straight to the bowl to talk to the man about a bloody mule. Just had lots of water, soy yogurt, protein shakes, breakfast supplements. Read somewhere that you can try to food process your meal to make it mushy or shredded before you eat. My wife jokingly suggested baby food, but that may not be a bad idea after all. Flare ups are bad news.... Hope you feel better soon.
