根据案例研究,基于植物的饮食导致克罗恩病的缓解

医师负责任医学委员会

根据发表在Nutrients杂志上的一项案例研究,吃植物性饮食可能是治疗克罗恩病的有效方法。

该病例研究追踪的是一名20多岁的男性,他在经历疲劳,腹胀,剧烈的严重腹痛,恶心和偶尔溃疡几年后被诊断出患有克罗恩病。经过一年多的静脉治疗,他的病情没有达到缓解。

在治疗的第二年,患者从他的饮食中取出所有动物产品和加工食品进行为期40天的宗教观察,并且完全没有症状。患者决定维持新的膳食模式 – 基于水果,蔬菜,全谷物和豆类 – 并且经历了克罗恩病的完全缓解。测试显示完全粘膜愈合,患者能够停止药物治疗。他报告说没有复发。

“这项案例研究为成千上万患有与克罗恩病相关的疼痛症状的人提供了希望,”该研究的共同作者,负责医学医师委员会临床研究主任Hana Kahleova医学博士说。

使用目前的治疗方案,只有约10%的传统治疗克罗恩病患者获得长期缓解,50%的患者在诊断后10年内需要手术治疗。

该研究的作者指出,基于植物的饮食富含纤维,可促进整体肠道健康。纤维还可以喂养肠道中的健康细菌 – 这可能对克罗恩病和其他消化问题起到保护作用。虽然需要进行更多的研究,但之前的研究已经支持这样的结论:富含植物蛋白和全食的饮食可能会使克罗恩病患者受益。

“这个案例研究支持食物真正是药物的想法,”Kahleova博士补充说。 “它不仅表明食用高纤维,植物性饮食有助于克罗恩病的缓解,但所有’副作用’都是好的,包括降低患心脏病,2型糖尿病和某些疾病的风险。癌症类型。“

Plant-based diet leads to Crohn’s Disease remission, according to case study

Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine

Eating a plant-based diet may be an effective treatment for Crohn’s disease, according to a case study published in the journal Nutrients.

The case study followed a man in his late 20s who had been diagnosed with Crohn’s disease after experiencing fatigue, bloating, episodic severe abdominal pain, nausea, and occasional ulcers for several years. His condition did not reach remission after more than a year of intravenous treatment.

During his second year of treatment, the patient removed all animal products and processed foods from his diet for a 40-day religious observation and experienced a total absence of symptoms. The patient decided to maintain the new dietary pattern–which was based on fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and legumes–and experienced a complete remission of Crohn’s disease. Tests showed complete mucosal healing, and the patient was able to cease medications. He reports no relapses since.

“This case study offers hope for hundreds of thousands of people suffering from the painful symptoms associated with Crohn’s disease,” says study co-author Hana Kahleova, MD, PhD, director of clinical research at the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine.

Using current treatment regimens, only about 10 percent of traditionally managed Crohn’s disease patients achieve long-term remission, and 50 percent of patients require surgery within 10 years of diagnosis.

The study authors note that plant-based diets are high in fiber, which promotes overall gut health. Fiber also feeds the healthy bacteria in the gut–which may offer a protective effect against Crohn’s disease and other digestive problems. While more research is needed, previous studies have supported the conclusion that diets rich in plant proteins and whole foods may benefit Crohn’s disease patients.

“This case study supports the idea that food really is medicine,” adds Dr. Kahleova. “Not only does it show that eating a high-fiber, plant-based diet could help lead to Crohn’s disease remission, but all the ‘side effects’ are good ones, including a reduced risk for heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and certain types of cancer.”
