IBS in IBD Patients (Portland 2014)
Portland, OR

crohn's colitis education program color

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) are two distinct gastrointestinal disorders that produce similar symptoms but involve very different treatments. Many IBD patients also have IBS, which means they experience symptoms without active inflammation or IBD activity. Being aware of this distinction can help you manage your Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis.

Join CCFA for this free patient education program discussing:

  • Distinguishing IBS and IBD activity
  • The role of diet and naturopathic therapies
  • The effect of stress and other triggers on IBS
  • Question-and-answer session
