Additional study information
About 1 in 300 Canadians have Crohn’s disease.
Managing Crohn’s disease can be difficult. Studies have shown that fasting might be able to lower inflammation in your body – and this study wants to measure if this will help those with Crohn’s disease.
In this 12 week study participants will eat during a 8-hour daily window, answer written questions, and visit the research team in person twice for a briefing and to gather some basic health data.
45 people in total will be selected to join this study.
So if you’re willing to test fasting right now, the study is still accepting participants.
