I wouldnt necessarily word it that way but you can most definately make Crohn's symptoms worse by eating sugar. Here is why:My brother knows a doctor who swears that if you don't eat sugar your Crohn's will get better. Anyone have any experience with that one way or the other?
Of course. Is there anything specific he is interested in trying right now? And how much detail is he wanting?Hi, I am very interested in your reply and you sound very knowledgeabe. My son was pursuing a graduate degree in science and is very concerned about the scientific basis for things that he considers trying. Any research you can point to that I could pass on to him. You have position of Crohn's Forum Science Advisor, can you tell me more about that, please. Thank you.
When I was taken off sugar (after I had my little meltdown), I started baking with dates too. It takes a bit of getting used to but using dates instead of white refined sugar for baking is excellent! I feel like it makes the foods taste even more rich.Hello,
I saw an acupuncturist about 4 years ago and during treatment he had me cut out all refined sugar (maaan I didn’t realize that it is in EVERYTHING). I went 14 months straight with absolutely no refined sugar (baked with madjool dates, honey…natural stuff) I have to say during that time I did not experience one symptom and my energy was fantastic ( i felt normal for once!) I didn’t finally break one day and have some and I felt the effects for about a week.
It has been 3 years since then and I do occasionally have some sugar but very very little and I notice a difference with my symptoms when I go a little over board on the sugar.
