Health Tip: Help Control Crohn's Symptoms

Health Tip: Help Control Crohn's Symptoms


(HealthDay News) -- People with Crohn's disease -- a type of inflammatory bowel -- are prone to being malnourished.

The University of Maryland Medical Center offers these suggestions to help people with Crohn's better manage their diet:

  • Snack throughout the day on small amounts of food, rather than eating big meals.
  • Drink plenty of water.
  • Stay away from spicy foods, and stick to bland, softer offerings.
  • Steer clear of foods that are high in fiber, such as popcorn, seeds, beans, nuts and bran.
  • Don't eat foods that are greasy or fried, and avoid heavy and fattening sauces that contain cream, butter or margarine.
  • Restrict milk and dairy products if you are lactose intolerant.
  • Limit caffeine and alcohol.
