After developing Crohn’s disease in 2016, I did an elimination diet and lost 50 pounds. That led me to my lowest adult weight of 165lbs. But in the years since, I’ve settled into a desk job as a technical writer and did nothing to maintain anything active.

It wasn’t a fun thing, but it passed on as those things do. Until it didn’t. Onset See, while the symptoms at first subsided, things got weird not too long after I thought I’d recovered. What do I mean by “weird”? Well, for starters, I worried that I was having appendicitis.
