Designing your diet
In general, most people with IBD should eat a well-balanced diet with a lot of variety. However, everyone has different needs depending on what their IBD is like. Talk with your doctor or dietitian to create a customized diet based on: which disease you have (Crohn’s or ulcerative colitis), if you have an intestinal stricture (narrowed areas of the bowel) or have ever had a blockage before, what part of your intestine is affected, and if your disease is active (having symptoms) or inactive (remission — not having symptoms).
