    Many people with Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis find that some foods will make their symptoms worse.  However, there is no one food which affects everyone in the same way.  

    To learn which foods affect you, consult a dietitian with experience in the investigation of food intolerance and Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis.  It is a rather lengthy process and can sometimes involve severe restriction of the diet.  A dietitian will guide you through the investigation and advise you on ways to ensure that you continue to have a healthy diet.
