It has become acceptable to talk about heart disease, ulcers and even cancer, but inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) -- which includes two chronic conditions known as Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis -- has remained for too long the secret illness that no one wants to discuss.

Now Dr. Fred Saibil, a renowned expert on IBD, provides concise, up-to-date information on these common conditions.

Dr. Saibil begins by describing the normal gastrointestinal system, and then explains what goes wrong in someone with IBD. He also discusses: Signs and symptomsProcedures and instruments used to diagnose IBDAffects of dietDrugs available and how they workPros and cons of various surgical optionsEffects on sexual activity and child-bearing

Dr. Saibil even provides travel tips and other useful self-help strategies for living with IBD, and explains possible complications of the disease, and the special problems of children with IBD.

With its detailed tables, sidebars and diagrams, Crohn's Disease & Ulcerative Colitis gives you the straight facts about a disease that effects many thousands of North Americans.
