Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)


Welcome to the hub of information on IBD.  We’ll call it that from now on, because who wants to say Inflammatory Bowel Disease over and over again?  This hub includes the topics of Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn’s Disease.

You have almost certainly read up on these topics prior to landing here.  However, I promise that the information I provide will dive deeper into truly understanding the condition.  I do my best not to duplicate any information that you could find somewhere else – I believe in the value of your time, and mine!

I could have split ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease into separate sections.  But I realized that writing about them together helps to showcase the differences between the two (and also lends to a conversation about a concept called indeterminate colitis).

Overwhelmed by a new diagnosis?  Start here for some words of support.

If you’d like to feel more confident in your understanding of the GI tract first, then this is the section for you.
