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!

I want to share my experiences to raise awareness of Crohn's, as well as helping out people who have been diagnosed. 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
