Fear, reality and IBD

10/23/2013

"These diseases are serious. This isn't just a little GI disorder. These diseases are causing major damage to our organs. Patients with IBD can experience bowel perforation, toxic megacolon, malnutrition and malabsorption, fistulas, abscesses, and so on. Not to mention the side-effects of some of the medications we have to take. I don't write this blog to scare anyone and now that I think of it, it does come off pretty scary. But I really dislike when we are not faced with all the facts. With reality. This is real. We have these diseases and they are serious. It is the loss of patients with IBD that fuels my fire even more to educate the world about Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, and to want to hug you patients tight and support you even more.
