Foods to Avoid with Crohn's Disease (ANIMATION)

Editor

It’s easy to understand why high-fat, greasy foods, such as pizza, aren’t a good idea for people with Crohn’s disease to eat. But so are many other foods that may not be so obvious. Why are nuts a risky choice?  What about cheese? And is it best to avoid coffee?

There’s no evidence that what you eat causes Crohn’s disease, or that inflammation of the intestine can be exacerbated by what you eat. Each individual is unique, but certain foods and beverages may aggravate your symptoms. Keeping a food diary along with a journal of your symptoms is the best way to help your health care provider assist with your treatment. Talk with your physician or registered dietitian about meal planning to ensure that your diet contains all nutrients essential for health.
