The First Year Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis : An Essential Guide for the Newly Diagnosed (The First Year Series)
by Jill Sklar, Manuel Sklar
Crohn’s Disease and ulcerative colitis, collectively known as inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD), affect an estimated 2 million Americans, yet there are few resources available to help improve the quality of life for those afflicted with these chronic and painful intestinal disorders. In the tradition of the other titles in The First Year™ series, The First Year™—Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis uses a unique approach—guiding readers through their first seven days following diagnosis, then the next three weeks of their first month, and finally the next eleven months of their first year—to provide answers and advice that will help everyone newly diagnosed with IBD come to terms with their condition and the lifestyle changes that accompany it. Author Jill Sklar provides vital information about the nature of IBD, treatment options, dietary choices, fertility issues, holistic alternatives, charts and tables, and much more. The First Year™—Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis will be a supportive and educational resource for everyone who wants to take an active role in the management of their IBD.
