P167 ADULT CROHN’S DISEASE TREATED WITH THE SPECIFIC CARBOHYDRATE DIET (SCD): A CASE REPORT USING OBJECTIVE MARKERS OF RESPONSE




The specific carbohydrate diet (SCD) has been shown to resolve symptoms in pediatric IBD patients, inducing clinical remission and normalizing or significantly reducing inflammatory markers. Demonstration of similar effects, including changes to objective disease markers, are lacking in the adult IBD patient. Presented here are clinical, biomarker, microbiome, imaging and histologic observations after successful implementation of the SCD in an adult with moderate-to-severe Crohn’s disease. HISTORY: A 50-year-old male patient, diagnosed with Crohn’s disease in 2001, implemented the SCD in 2017 according to the published protocol.
