Dear Lisa
Because of the fact that your hubby has Crohn's I would recommend that you consult a clinical dietitian (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). The dietitian will have to work out a diet that balances the Crohn's with your hubby's arthritis, and the various medications he may have to take for both conditions. This is not something I can do for your over the internet because he needs an individual diet prescription.
I do hope that both conditions respond to dietary treatment.
Best regards
DietDoc
