Maybe they often visit a GI specialist but you have no clue what a GI specialist does. Maybe your friend has been opting out on indulging in foods and drinks you used to normally enjoy together and you keep wondering what the huge deal is.
If you have friends or family who have one or both diseases but are unclear as to what having Crohn’s and Colitis entails, then this blog is just for you. Here’s some information you may need to get an improved understanding of what your loved ones may be facing as they continue to live with their disease. If you yourself happen to be someone living with Crohn’s or Colitis, be sure to share this with others to help give them a better understanding.
