Nutritional interventions may help avoid surgery in patients with complicated Crohn's disease

Firat I am hearing this but very encouraging:

One of the most promising areas for nutritional approaches is treating CD complications. Levine and colleagues pointed out that EEN has effectively treated inflammatory strictures, intra-abdominal abscess, and enterocutaneous fistulae. "Use of preoperative exclusive enteral nutrition for 4 weeks or more may reduce the need for surgical resections,"

Thanks, this reseach team has lots of interesting alternative treatments projects on the way. They are very interesting to fallow.
THe lead author Dr Levine is from Israel. I remember a nutrionnist who visited a IBD clinic in Israel and who was amazed with all the different flavors and choices of EEN they had for CD. They use EEn a lot in Isreal.
