What Foods Trigger Crohn's Disease?

The dedicated doctors of Digestive Medicine Associates proudly serve the communities of Hialeah, Coral Gables, Pembroke Pines, Miami, FL, to help patients struggling with Crohn's disease and other digestive conditions. If you are having digestive symptoms and have never been diagnosed, it's important to see a doctor about Crohn's disease.

What is Crohn's disease?

Crohn's disease is a chronic gastrointestinal disorder characterized by inflammation of the digestive tract. Symptoms of Crohn's disease can include:

  • Chronic diarrhea
  • Persistent stomach pain
  • Fatigue
  • Loss of appetite
  • Weight loss

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, come see one of our doctors in Hialeah, Coral Gables, Pembroke Pines, Miami, FL. We can diagnose Crohn's disease and create a customized treatment plan for managing your symptoms. Living with Crohn's disease can be overwhelming and cause extra stress, so managing it is important for your health.

What foods trigger Crohn's disease?

There is no cure for Crohn's disease, but your doctor can help you with a customized treatment plan to control symptoms. Watching what you eat is essential for managing your symptoms, and it is best to avoid:

  • Foods high in sugar
  • Foods high in fat
  • Lactose
  • Alcohol
  • Caffeine
  • High fiber foods

All these foods can trigger Crohn's symptoms in patients. Talk with your doctor about your triggers and we will help you find the foods that work for you.

What can you eat with Crohn's disease?

Adding the right foods to your diet can help ease symptoms, too. Fruits and vegetables give you vitamins, nutrients, and the fiber you need. Calcium-rich foods are important for your health, and if lactose triggers your Crohn's, look for dairy-free sources of calcium or ask your doctor for recommendations.
