First Scientific Study of How SCD Works

Posted on Posted in Actions for Change, Film Issues, Treatments

Update (March 13th, 2011)
I was told Rush University Medical Center now has all the required SCD patients and are no longer accepting people into the study. They are however still looking for patients who are not using SCD and have been officially diagnosed with Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis and indeterminate colitis.

I am really please to share with you the news that Rush University Medical Center’s Department of Gastroenterology in Chicago is conducting a study to determine in what way the Specific Carbohydrate Diet works for patients with Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis and indeterminate colitis.

If you are interested in participating in the study, download this .pdf for contact information and requirements in order to participate. Here’s a webpage too.

I am participating in the study myself and hope you can as well. This diet is too important not to be studied and taken seriously. Thanks to Rush University for doing this!

  • I am participating also. I just got the kit in the mail today.
    I was sick for years with Crohn’s. I have been doing SCD since I was diagnosed, about 1 year.
    I have been in remmission for the last 5 months. Now I have the energy I am combining SCD with bike riding. Saturday I rode 60 miles and it was so much fun that on Sunday I rode 50.
    There is no question I owe this to SCD
