Hydration

Well, this diet has really been working wonders for me. I am not on any medications for Crohn's right now and haven't been for months. My gastroenterologist is skeptical about the whole thing, but my last colonoscopy showed a marked improvement from last year when I was still on Humira and Lomotil.

I did start back with 1 regular cup of coffee a day and it had the effect of causing me to be dehydrated. I was drinking water every morning, and now I don't want it with the coffee.

Hydration is an important component of staying well with Crohn's Disease. I've been drinking my 64 ounces a day, but that still doesn't seem to be enough.  I am going to try the tips in this article, starting with a week of using Normalyte Rehydration Salts.

On a personal note, I have a new puppy. His name is Dylan.
