My team at King’s College London are investigating how diet can be used to manage active flares of Crohn’s disease.

We have designed a new diet and are looking to test whether it can reduce gut inflammation. We’re looking for willing volunteers with active Crohn’s disease to try the diet for 8 weeks and to have their gut inflammation, gut bacteria and gut leakiness tested before and after the diet.

The 8-week study involves:

  • Two hospital visits

  • Following a diet with a phone app

  • Eating the provided research snacks

  • Donation of blood, stool and urine samples

Apply to take part

  • St Marks Hospital London
