Inflamatory Bowel Disease explained in first person

Professionals and patients explain how you live with the disease
It is very important to be informed about the disease and to maintain communication, as well as cooperate, with the referring physician in order to make shared decisions on the health care of the patient.
Go very relaxed, listen to your body more and do not strain it. Follow the instructions of the doctor.
