Answer

No general dietary recommendations exist for Behçet disease. Patients with severe bowel involvement are advised to follow the same GI recommendations given to patients with inflammatory bowel disease. These patients often require total parenteral nutrition.

Activity is suggested as tolerated and may be limited owing to systemic symptoms or arthritis.
