Hi Anonymous,
Thanks for your question and for finding EmpowHER. Yes, gastritis can be acute (coming on quickly and last briefly) or chronic (long-lasting or recurrent). Here is more information about the condition, a bland diet helps in dealing with gastritis, and there are certain foods to avoid:
Hope that helps!

Hi Anonymous

What meds are you taking for the Crohn's? Many Crohn's patients take prednisone or prednisolone (a steroid) and that can be really hard on the stomach and cause gastritis. It's hard to avoid steroids with Crohn's, but sometimes a doc will have you take an ulcer preventing drug to counteract that gastric issue from the steroids.

If we can help further, please let us know.
