Diagnose One is Here

by Meg on October 25, 2011



Drum roll please….. I have Crohn’s disease(an ongoing disorder that causes inflammation of the digestive tract). Good times!!

For now, I’m going to start a medication, get a small intestine MRI and blood drawn AGAIN for inflammatory markers as well as stay on a GLUTEN FREE diet!


I came home to share this news with my wonderful  husband who met me at the door with a temperature of 102F! The flu has come to our house – blech! Good thing I got my flu shot at the hospital!

After tucking him in- I made myself a delicious dinner of roasted potatoes and green beans, tuna and boiled egg.


Does anyone know any good Crohns blogs?

I’m sorry to hear about your diagnosis but if anyone can tackle that condition it’s you. You are so positive – an inspiration!

I am SOOOOOOOOOOOO sorry to hear this news – it always makes me so sad when I hear this news.

and never ever eat green beans again – they can cause an immediate flare that can send you to the hospital. clearly we need to talk. I’m so sad right now:-(

ha! i have a mild/moderate case so for now i can eat green beans. i am looking at what my triggers are though.
I know gluten is one, and maybe corn.
thanks for the help d!
