Eat to relieve

Hi, I haven't been diagnosed with any condition yet despite many visits to the Dr, but I suspect I may have Ulcerative Colitis or Crohn's Disease. For several years I have been getting pain on my right abdomen, a lot of rumbling sounds, looser stools and more visits to the toilet. But I have not had any weight loss nor do i feel fatigued or have a loss of appetite.

One thing I have noticed is that the pain and noises seem to subside when I have a full stomach or bowel after eating carbs, like bread. I suspect the carbs are soaking up excess acid.

Does eating relieve the symptoms of any UC and CD sufferers on here or am I barking up the wrong tree?

Im only in my 30s so it seems to be unlikely that it's it bowel cancer but that is my main worry.

Thanks for reading

  1. Hey , thanks so much for posting. This is a great question. I'm hopeful some community members will chime in with their experiences. Everyone experiences Crohn's and UC differently but I'm curious to see other's responses to your question as well! In the meantime, how are you feeling today? - Pam (team member)
