If stress was a factor I would never see improvement, because I'm too busy stressing about eating the right thing.Have you considered stress as a factor? I know it negatively impacts my body. There are certain foods that cause trouble when I'm stressed, such as potatoes, carrots and chicken eggs.
I've conveyed this to him, there is no pattern and it seems purely degenerative. Every year I can eat less.
And this is apparently a Crohn's specialist so I don't know where else to go with it.
No, I don't respond to humira or remicade, I tried medical marijuana and he's not willing to explore LDN. He wouldn't even write me for medical, I had to go elsewhere for it.In my experience the best way to get your body able to tolerate foods more or less normally is to get and keep the Crohn's in remission. Other than modifying your diet, what else are you doing to control your Crohn's? Does this specialist have you on any medication?

I think he said something about not knowing what to give me because my condition is more or less under control when I'm eating the right diet, I don't present with inflammation, just elevated CRP at times, but not to a concerning amount.
I will talk to him about this, I need to book a follow up as I'm well overdue, I've just been putting it off because honestly nothing ever gets done at them, I don't come away with new treatment options or anything.Have you or your doc considered any of the newer biologics such as Stelara or Entyvio? They work by different mechanisms than do Humira and Remicade, and some people who failed the anti-TNFs have gotten their disease into remission with those newer drugs.
