Are Protein Shakes Okay?

My Crohn's has been in remission for the better part of 8 years.  I recently started working out again and would like to put on some bulk.  Is it safe for me to drink protein shakes or could that trigger flare-up?

That is a good question for your GI dr.  I would not start anything like that without asking the dr.  And about how much is ok.

I am glad that your chrons is in remission and has been for 8 years.  But you will always have it and don't want to do anything to cause a flare-up.

Mine is in remission 2 years now.  I did have to have bowel resection.  However, I was older than most people when I found out I had chrons.  

When you have had bad flareups you really appreciate how good you feel in remission.

Best of luck
