Crohns patient

Question Details

 I have Crohns disease but I am actually overweight and want to lose about 30 pounds. Are there any dietary supplements that I can take and are there any restrictions on an exercise program? I also cant tolerate caffeine. Thanks! Brian


Hi Brian,

My first thought for you would be to do a food allergy test. It will help you eliminate the foods that irritate you and cause inflammation, and will help you with weight issues as well.
