About Avoiding Trigger Foods

Every patient with IBD is unique and may have unique foods that trigger symptoms regardless of inflammation levels. Using a food and symptoms journal may help identify foods that trigger symptoms. An elimination diet (starting with a simple diet of known tolerated foods and adding in more foods one at a time) is another way to potentially identify trigger foods. Identifying and removing such triggers from your diet may resolve lingering symptoms.
