70% of Crohn’s Disease Patients Find Dairy Gives Them Pain

Recently I asked members of a Crohn’s & Ulcerative Colitis group whether or not dairy gave them abdominal pain. Including my vote, of the 109 respondents, 76 said that dairy did indeed give them abdominal pain, which is 70% of the respondents.

“Dairy products have been perceived as having the potential to cause adverse effects in individuals with Crohn’s disease (CD) and are often avoided.” said one study. Specifically, “dairy products with a high fat content were most frequently reported to worsen perceived CD symptoms.”
