I have crohns and have suffered for a long time but now for the first time think I have a way to control my symptoms with out prescription drugs. 1 a high protein low sugar and low carbohydrate diet(dramatically reduced my gas problem). 2 calcium supplements(dramatically reduced my diarea). I got both these ideas from this web site for which I wanted to say thanks.Ps. I think it helps a lot if you do it in that order because with out the gas your stomach has more time to start digesting the calcium pills.
