On Modulen but thinking about SCD

Hi All,

After some advice from all you lovely people. I had a total colectomy last year, and for a few months everything was great. But the inevitable happened and now the Crohn's is back. I am just shocked about how aggressive it it, I am now completely on Modulen and although it is keeping a lid on things, I am not going into remission. If I eat the tiniest amount of food, I get symptoms.

My dietician said to try the LOFLEX diet, but after just a few days I couldn't continue on it and went back to full Modulen.

I'm thinking about trying SCD because I don't really have any other options. But is Modulen compatible with it? Can I do part Modulen part SCD? I'm not so sure because it is so sweet it obviously contains sugars.

For example; I travel a lot with my job, and in some instances I think it would be easier to drink Modulen than it would be to find food that is legal on SCD. Or perhaps I'm wrong - does anyone have thoughts on travelling whilst doing SCD?

Would be great to get your thoughts,

Dawn.

OK folks, well I've done a lot of research this weekend and I now know that Modulen is NOT SCD legal. It contains corn syrup for a start - which sort of surprised me to be honest.

After all this research two major things have struck me; firstly, I have to try this and secondly for all its's evils, the internet is great for finding out about this sort of thing.

I'm in a tricky position, travelling a lot with my job and about to move house and start another job which will also have me travelling. But at the moment, I can't eat anything, with no change in sight. So onwards to the SCD I say!
