    SCD (specific carbohydrate diet) for digestive issues
    crohn_girl posted:
    I have had Crohns disease for the past 5 and a half long years. I was in remission for 2 and a half years but been flaring up for 2 months now. I started the SCD today and hoping to see results very soon. I made gluten free belgium waffles and a smoothie with homemade yogurt, strawberries, and banana. Who has tried the Specific Carbohydrate diet? How does it work for you? I borrowed the book Breaking the Vicious Cycle at the library today and it has great recipes in it. I also got a few gluten free cookbooks and a Autism cookbook thats Gluten and Dairy free. I hope to see results soon. ~Hannah

    Hi Hannah, I have not ever had a problem with the foods I eat and Crohn's but I know there are people with that problem. I want to invite you to join our Crohn's and Colitis community here on Web MD. We have several people who are on gluten free and can give you some hints and tips on diet. I hope that you can find something that can put you back in remission. Take good care, Jeaneau
    Love Goes There,
