Not much else to say.

I’m the author of Beat Crohn’s, and I want to thank you for giving my book such a careful reading. I appreciate your comments! I would also like to give you and others with Crohn’s colitis a little ray of hope. This past summer a new study was published that reported on 114 children with Crohn’s treated with enteral nutrition. Overall, 80% of the children reached remission, and the 19 kids with Crohn’s with limited to the colon had remission rates just as good as those with disease in other locations. As you rightly point out, you can’t predict in advance whether you’re going to respond, but this study adds a little evidence to the argument that people with Crohn’s colitis shouldn’t rule out enteral nutrition out of hand.

Wow! Thanks Margaret. I am glad to hear about this study, and that it gives us some hope!
