Just wondering if eating mashed potatoes(with the skin left on), on baked potatoes has any kind of effect, good/bad

I'm not a fan of mashed potatoes too much but I looovvveee potatoes. My favorite are boiled red skin potatoes with some salt, sometimes I just eat a bowl of them for dinner. Or I buy the canned sliced white potatoes and cook them on the stove with butter, paprika, garlic powder, and whatever else I decide to throw on there. I usually never have problems eating them. In fact, I think I will make some for dinner tonight now that I'm thinking of it ^_^

Also, usually when I eat baked potatoes it accompanies a steak and I am sure it's the steak that always sends me running for the bathroom.

I eat them, but not with the peel. 
 
I was eating them so much while I was in a mini flare that I thought it was the most appropriate screenname to use here I could think of.

The reason I'm asking, is I can't remember if the skin ever bothered me. I know before when I was in remission, I would boil some with salt and just add butter and eat. But now, I'm at the tail end(pun intended) of this flare that was caused by a sinus infection 3months ago and I am CRAVING these now. Oh well, I guess I'll just have to try it and see what happens I guess.

I eat the little red ones with the skins on them and they don't seem to bother me much, but I never eat the baked potato skins or have skin in my mashed potatoes, only because I don't like it.

make sure they're scrubbed properly and the eyes removed. They shouldn't pose you any problems if you've mashed them well. I love potato skins especially on new potatoes, but prefer mashed potatoes withoug the skins..more of a texture thing.

What's the worst that can happen? You won't flare from it, you might see them in your poo the next day...but one doesn't digest them anyway.

No biggie...enjoy.

for a low residue diet to go easy on the colon, they instruct you to remove the skins.
but its personal preference otherwise.
and of course, depends on how it feels coming out too!

currently flaring again..  grrr! (triggered by stress - grrr)

The skin of boiled new potatoes is thin-- so should not cause digestive problems, but since you're coming out of a flare, I would advise you not to eat Idaho (baking variety) skins which are thicker & might give you a gas attack. Boiling moisturizes the skins, baking dries them out. / Old Hat (nearly 30 yrs with left-sided UC; currently on 3 Colazal daily for maintenance of remission)

BACKGROUND: Disruption of epithelial barrier integrity is important in the initiation and cause of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Glycoalkaloids, solanine (S), and chaconine (C) are naturally present in potatoes, can permeabilize cholesterol-containing membranes, and lead to disruption of epithelial barrier integrity. Frying potatoes concentrates glycoalkaloids. Interestingly, the prevalence of IBD is highest in countries where fried potatoes consumption is highest. OBJECTIVE: To further understand the role of potato glycoalkaloids on intestinal barrier integrity, we examined the effect of varying concentrations of solanine and chaconine on intestinal permeability and function. METHODS: Solanine (0-50 microM), chaconine (0-20 microM), or a 1:1 mixture (0-20 microM) were exposed to T84 cultured epithelial monolayers for varying periods of time to determine concentration response effect on epithelial permeability. Next, a 1:1 mixture (5 microM) of solanine-to-chaconine (C:S) was exposed to sheets of normal murine small intestine, mounted in Ussing chambers, from control and interleukin-10 gene-deficient mice to determine whether glycoalkaloids affected intestine from mice with a genetic predisposition for IBD greater than controls. Finally, the effects of glycoalkaloids on colonic histologic injury were examined in mice orally fed amounts of glycoalkaloids that would normally be consumed in a human diet. RESULTS: Glycoalkaloids embedded and permeabilized the T84 monolayer epithelial membrane bilayer in a concentration-dependent fashion, with C:S > C > S. In vitro Ussing chamber experiments also illustrated a concentration-dependent disruption of intestinal barrier integrity in animals with a genetic predisposition to develop IBD, but not in control animals. Similarly, in vivo oral feeding experiments demonstrated that C:S ingestion, at physiologic concentrations, aggravated histologic colonic injury in mice genetically predisposed to developing IBD. CONCLUSION: Concentrations of glycoalkaloids normally available while eating potatoes can adversely affect the mammalian intestine and can aggravate IBD.

Okay - a bit technical for me on a Friday afternoon... But I get the jist of it - fried potatoes (aka french fries) are not so good for you.

I think you'll be okay with the new potatoes. Maybe peel half of them? Just to be on the safe side?

For some reason hashbrowns don't digest well for me. I see them the next day. Could that be because they're fried? Even though I use EVOO?

Potatoes are one of the few things tolerated during a flare at our house. Mashed, baked and shredded hashbrowns in butter are her favorite!

Potatoes are the main part of most of our irish peoples diet. i eat them every day almost. the only time i have problems is when the seasonal types of potatos change. for example moving from pinks to cyprus/spanish potatos.

I think people are getting offended because you're assuming that NO ONE here has tried to modify their diet and that IBD is completely a diet based disease. If the SCD works for your son that is great, but it doesn't for everyone. Just as one drug won't work for everyone, one diet won't work for everyone. It is NOT that simple. You keep throwing around "It's not rocket science" like we're all a bunch of idiots for still being sick and not living on fish and honey. I AM college educated and can read, and I still have active ulcerative colitis, but I guess it's my own fault.

As for the signatures, it makes it easier when responding to give advice to someone when you can see their current diagnoses/situation/medication.

Redwriter, you're mistaken. This is a privately owned and operated forum which we are allowed to use free of cost. The administrator pays for the bandwidth and makes the rules.
