Diet and mesenteric panniculitis

Posted by sherib73 @sherib73, Sep 2 7:01am

A dietician has suggested a vegan diet for reducing MP/SM. Has anyone found this to provide relief?

My doc suggested the following, but not vegan: cut out or very limited sugar, dairy, caffeine (I have 1 cup of coffee a day then chamille tea), limited alcohol, decrease spicy and fried foods. Make sure you hydrate well every day (at least 1 gallon), ensure you are consuming fiber, get your sleep and seriously decrease your stress level. All this has worked for me since diagnosis in February. I had one flare since then that landed me in the ER again in June, but that was before my adjusted meds regime.

Hello @sherib73 and welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. I see that @erincorn has already responded to your question about an eating plan for mesenteric panniculitis. As this disorder is rather rare, I am glad that you were able to meet with a registered dietician.

Connect currently has a discussion group on this topic which you might find helpful. Here is the link, https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/mesenteric-panniculitis-or-schlerosing-mesentertis-auto-immune-around-small-intestine/

As you are a new member of Mayo Clinic Connect would you be comfortable sharing more about your history with mesenteric panniculitis? For example, how long ago were you diagnosed and what were your symptoms that led to this diagnosis? Please share only as you are comfortable doing so.

I look forward to hearing from you again. Will you post updates about your progress in dealing with this disorder?

@russelflippo I am currently taking Dicyclomine and Ondansetron ODT, both as needed when there are flares. and Constulose every day.
