Our expert says:
I am sorry to hear that you are suffering from Crohn's disease which is a difficult condition to treat. I cannot believe that you have had this condition for 7 years and have not yet seen a clinical dietitian?? If you have never consulted a dietitian, now is the time to do so because diet does play an important role, but you need an individual diet prescription that is tailored to the present state of the disease, your medications and other individual factors. Visit the Association for Dietetics in SA Website at: www.adsa.org.za and click on "Find a Dietitian" to find a dietitian in your area, or ask your physician or surgeon to refer you.
