Gut health shortcuts and long-term whole-body research shed light on inflammatory bowel disease through every type of IBD, life phase, and related disease, including cancer. Reduce your symptoms and improve your quality of life by taking two expert Mayo Clinic doctors' easy-to-digest advice. What to eat, when to eat it, why it helps, and when it's time to call a doctor round out everything you need to know to take control...for life.

Tired of making your gastric struggles the center of conversation? Every conversation. Ready to wrangle your IBD symptoms and corral your pain and worry so that they take their proper place in your life?

Abdominal pain, anemia, bleeding, cramps, diarrhea, malnutrition, and weight loss have run your life far too long. Whether you've been diagnosed with Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, collagenous colitis, lymphocytic colitis, or any other of the half-dozen ailments associated with IBD, this book helps you chart a path back to health. More than 3 million Americans suffer from chronic, incurable IBD, affecting Americans ages three to 80-plus. You don't have to be among them any longer. Newly revised and updated, Mayo Clinic Drs. Farraye (New England Crohn's and Colitis Foundation lifetime achievement award recipient) and Kane (former Chair of the National Patient Education Committee of NECCF) pull from clinical trials and tap the latest data to offer clear advice and compassionate solutions.

You'll learn the science of its underlying causes and how it strikes, how to change your lifestyle to improve your health, what medications to discuss with your doctor, alternative therapies to consider, surprising ways the disease can affect other parts of the body, the cancer connection, when to have surgery, and how the condition can affect fertility, pregnancy, and children.
