Moderate amounts of social alcohol should be fine in Crohn's disease. There are certain diets and dietary plans that may call for complete elimination of alcohol during the diet, such as exclusive enteral nutrition. During that period, you're essentially strictly on protein shakes to rest the bowel. And in that specific treatment algorithm alcohol is not recommended most of the time, however, when patients are in remission and their disease is well controlled, social alcohol, is acceptable.
