What to eat during or after a colitis flare up
Food may not cause IBD in the first place, but it may make Inflammatory bowel disease symptoms worse.
Dairy, raw vegetables, fatty foods, spicy foods, caffeine and alcohol, and even too much fibre, can be problematic for some.
Generally, bland foods with low residues such as oatmeal, chicken, turkey or fish, cooked eggs, mashed potato, rice and sourdough bread may be well tolerated. Balanced nutritional supplements may be beneficial to help meet the nutritional requirements of patients.
