The Specific Carbohydrate Diet: Does it change the intestinal microbiota and metabolome?
This study is currently recruiting subjects who are not on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet or a similar diet. Each subject must fill out surveys and send in two stool samples and one urine sample. This study can be done completely from home and does not require presence at Rush University Medical Center. All subjects will receive results of DNA analysis of stool.
Subjects must be 8 years old or older, have a mailing address in the USA and have a formal diagnosis of either Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis or indeterminate colitis.
