Diagnosed at Age 24 with Crohn’s Disease (Colonoscopy show 90% of Colon affected, GI estimated disease onset 9 years b/f diagnosis in 2007), living in southern Virginia originally from Indiana. Married mother with a toddler at home and working full-time as an Engineer. Love baking, reading, hiking the Blue Ridge Mountains.
I tried my first SCD yogurt today and loved it!
My GI really wants me to try Imuran, but I don’t think the side affect are worth it. There’s also another reason I don’t want to be drugged up, I’ve got baby fever. I’m so ready for another little one. I’m also pretty sure that whatever goes on in your body while pregnant that keeps your body from attacking the baby also helps you’re gut not attack itself.
So I’m making yogurt, working on cutting out caffeine, reading the SCD book and trying to psych myself up to do this diet. Any words of wisdom would be appreciated!
