Gluten-free diets are one of the many dietary approaches individuals suffering from Crohn's disease use to try and alleviate symptoms associated with the disease, according to the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America. Because gluten intolerance is not directly linked to Crohn's disease, eliminating it does not work for everyone.
Individuals suffering from Crohn's disease are advised to pay close attention to what they eat to determine which foods aggravate their symptoms, the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America explains. There are no known food intolerances directly linked to Crohn's disease. Foods that aggravate the symptoms of one individual with the disease may not aggravate the symptoms of another. Furthermore, foods individuals were once tolerant with may aggravate their symptoms in the future, making paying attention to their diets and seeing their doctors often necessities for individuals with Crohn's disease.
