About Inflammatory Bowel Disease
Yet it is largely a hidden disease, and one that causes stigma, fear and isolation – it’s thought that many people with the condition go undiagnosed and suffer in silence. It doesn’t have to be like this.
We are the UK’s leading charity in the battle against Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis and we have dozens of free information sheets, booklets and guides that demystify Crohn’s and Colitis for anyone affected by them, including friends, family, medical professionals and even employers.
If you have any queries about the conditions, contact our dedicated Information Service.
