A diet designed to reduce food hypersensitivity may play a role in healing chronic anal fissures, Italian researchers reported in The American Journal of Gastroenterology. Sixty-nine percent of patients experienced healing on the study diet when added to other therapies, compared with 45% of controls. Researchers found some patients who went off the oligo-antigenic diet and consumed wheat and cow's milk had relapses, suggesting that anal fissures may be connected to food hypersensitivity.
