I've had Crohn's for a little over 2 years now and have never found anything to maintain remission. Cipro, an antibiotic, is the only thing that worked temporarily, but 3-4 months after taking it I would always flare. I've been on SCD for a year and 7 months, but I haven't really seen any difference in severity of my flares. I tried no dairy for a month (twice), but it didn't seem to make a difference.
I had just started LDN, but I got pregnant, and my OB/Gyn wanted me off. I was in remission at the time, but it seems the hormones from pregnancy have really flared my Crohn's, and this flare is the second worst to the initial presentation. It's been horrific with lots of extra-intestinal manifestations. I can't take Cipro right now, because it's not safe during pregnancy.
I'm wondering about the auto-immune protocol for paleo, which I could do with SCD, but I feel like it would be horribly restrictive, and I've already lost 10 pounds during the pregnancy. I was wondering what it would be like to add sweet potatoes for some carbs, but I'm a little afraid. However, since SCD never seemed to do much, I wonder if at this point if it would be a wise thing to try. I thought it may be better than loading up on fruit, but I don't know.
Just wondering if anyone has any experience with this. Since I'm pregnant, I don't think it would be wise to do anything drastic like seriously low carb, especially since I've lost weight. I did actually start up LDN again, because at this point the flare was so bad, I need something to help get it under control, and I don't want to try another biologic (which I've failed before).
