The Crohn's and Colitis UK's Publications team has just updated one of our information sheets:

Having Crohn’s Disease or Ulcerative Colitis can sometimes increase the risk of becoming dehydrated.

This information sheet looks at why this may happen and some ways to prevent and treat it.


We have more than 35 publications focusing on many aspects of Inflammatory Bowel Disease, from Understanding Crohn's and Colitis, medication information to benefits guides.
