How does alcohol effect your Crohn’s?

I am lucky enough to be able to enjoy a beer or two, and I love going out with friends. I have spoken to other people who have Crohn’s, and a fair few people have told me that if they touch any alcohol then it really causes a lot of problems for days afterwards. I just wanted to get an idea of how many people are OK with drinking and who has a really rough time. Feel free to leave comments!

Hello! I'm Tom, and I write on two pages here on wordpress. My first is TomsCrohnsDiary where I share my experience of living life with a condition called Crohn's Disease. I started this page to raise awareness of Crohn's, as well as helping out people who have been diagnosed. My more recent page is all about self sufficiency, sharing ideas that I pick up with my fiancee Sarah. If you have any questions then feel free to message or comment and I will answer! Have a great day people. KBO

    Alcohol was not my friend. I haven’t touched it since October 2014 when I started seeing my holistic doctor. When I did drink it- it was like a laxative. I don’t recall any cramping. But I remember it causing watery poop for days! It would also wake me up at night and I would be just making it to the bathroom! I also think it depends on the type of alcohol consumed- beer was way worse for me- but unknown to me there is gluten in beer and I am gluten intolerant. Once I have more healing it will be interesting to see if I will be one day able to handle alcohol.

      Thanks for your thoughts on this. I admit when I posted it I did wonder how the different types of drinks would effect people. If you did decide to try some when you are a little more fixed it will be interesting to hear how you get on with it! Thanks again for your reply, have a great day. KBO
