With summer officially upon us, barbecue season is in full swing. That means blue skies, sunshine and making merry memories. Whether you’re invited to a backyard shindig, spending a day at the beach or enjoying fresh air at the park, summer grilling is filling up your weekend schedule.
But even with the promise of summer fun, some of us opt out of these types of activities because of the spread. The threat of grilled foods and other barbecue fixings halts participation due to gastrointestinal conditions, such as:
- Celiac disease
- Crohn’s disease
- Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)
- Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)
- Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
With these types of conditions, eating certain foods may agitate the gastrointestinal tract, resulting in an unpleasant onset of symptoms that causes social anxiety.
