No, it's nothing to do with eating habbits. It's sadly just one of them things, if your prone to it (passed on through family) you can't help it.

Also bleeding from the bottom is normal, but there are fluids she can put up to help. Not 100% on the details, but I could find out if she isn't doing that already?

With many people they go on an elimination diet because diet is everything to do with it.

Bleeding from your back passage is NOT normal and is a sign you should go to your doctor. It's a symptom, not a by-product, so get it checked out.

Sorry, I meant it's normal for that to be a symptom of colitis, but there are medications to combat that.

My mum has it, and I have IBS (which what hers started as...then progressed after she had my little brother). Mum finds food that contain a lot of fibre as well as spicy foods, tend to make it a lot worse and will cause her to be in pain and have loose feaces from about 12-48 hours after ingestion. It's not a very nice condition, mum found it helpful to keep a 'food diary' for a few weeks, to find out which foods aggrevated it, so she could cut them out of her diet. Very helpful at managing the symptoms.

I had Crohn's diagnosed over 20 years ago. For me strenuous exercise, including running, will cause it to flare up but I've learnt to recognise the early signs of irritation and stop exercising in time to prevent it. If I'm stupid and carry on I'll be in crippling pain for 4-5 days.

What I eat is also an issue. No nuts or anything else that remains solid as it passes through the gut. Too much fibre also irritates it.

I am going to pass the 'eating habbit' info on to my other half, clearly she needs to cut down on a few things.

Thanks ladies

Not necessarily. Diet never has played any part in my flare ups. Stress and alcohol do. Food doesn't affect my Crohn's.
