Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis are chronic diseases with no known cures. An estimated 1.6 million Americans suffer from Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (IBD) most known as Crohn’s or Ulcerative Colitis. At Ocean Family Gastroenterology, our goal is to provide a comprehensive approach to care. Since there is no cure, we must find the treatment option that best controls the disease and its symptoms. Once we have the disease under control, we will work with you to determine how to manage diet, lifestyle, and medications to maintain remission and reduce flare ups.
How much time is your Crohn’s or Colitis taking from your personal life?
Crohn’s and Colitis can impact your life. Take these three steps to help you better control your Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis.
- Jot down your symptoms, including frequency and severity, between your Doctor appointments. This will provide us with key information for your treatment plan.
- Take note of any lifestyle adjustments that you make because of your illness. Again, this is important for us to understand when creating your treatment plan.
- Create a personal action plan and keep notes to share at your next appointment. The more we can discuss as a team the better your outcome will be.
