Jun 25, 2012 · IBD, CROHN's Colitis in Digestive Health

Actually any food that works for one patient might not work for another. So the best thing to do is to keep a Food, Feelings, Symptoms (FFS) Diary. Just google to find a sample.

By keeping a such a diary you’ll be able to review your intake over the past 3days when you are feeling sick. Then one by one you can eliminate possible triggers. Strangely, a food that works for me at one time might not work another time. So when I’m feeling even a little sick I will reduce /eliminate all milk & milk products, spicy stuff! Oily food, pizza type processed food etc.

Wishing you the best, do post if you have other queries.

I’m on Pentasa & Budesonide for the past 3months and will be taken off Budesonide in two days. I must confess that I’m worried that I’ll have a flare.

Although, the dosage has been steadily reduced from 3 tabs to one and no major issue, pls tell me I’ll be fine…

Does that mean you were well enough for docs to stop meds? I thought once on certain meds we need to take them for life! I hope your flare isn’t a strong one and you stay positive to get over it…my best wishes for you

Thanks for the info, had never heard of it. I’ve checked and read a bit this morning. Have you or someone you know tried it…just curious.

Wondering how your journey has been with crohn’s since such an early age…

Yes, 10min in the steam room & I felt faint headed! I rested for about 10 min but didn’t feel better …they only said that it happens when people are with an empty stomach…but guess what I had eaten earlier.

Some are not trained to watch out for health problems…

I’d like to add that keep a critical eye out for negative impact of any new treatment. I had signed-up for a spa treatment package &realized that the steam treatment was unsuitable for my skin &heart. Needed to submit a doctor’s letter to cancel the package deal!

It’s only recently that I’ve been diagnosed with Crohns colitis…at that time I only have occasional palpitations & issues tolerating cold.

Having a nutritious diet is always helpful but do check with your doctor before embarking on any drastic diet plan…massages sound harmless & relaxing…enjoy!

Jul 12, 2011 · What do you think of this Mayo Clinic community site? in Ear, Nose & Throat (ENT)

Thanks Lee for your prompt response….what little I’ve read about Crohn’s, I understand that it is pretty rare in the Asian population. Hence the Mayo Clinic site would be a very useful platform for patients like myself to get in touch with others with the same condition.

Actually I did try to scroll down but it didn’t work…I’m also looking forward to connecting with medical experts who could probably use my case to conduct studies/research Crohns & its evolving nature over time. I’d feel very satisfied if it leads to improved care for future patients.
