First Year: Crohn's Disease by Jill Sklar

Book Description

When Jill Sklar was diagnosed with Crohn's Disease in 1989, she quickly discovered the knowledge she sought - accessibly written medical information and guidance on practical, everyday coping skills - was not available. Since then Sklar has educated herself on every aspect of the management and treatment of Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis - by reading medical and scientific books and journals, talking with doctors, and networking with other sufferers. Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis are distressingly common diseases of the digestive system. While no cure currently exists, diet and lifestyle changes can make a big difference to the severity of symptoms. As a patient-expert, Sklar walks readers through everything they need to do and learn in the crucial first year following diagnosis. She provides essential information about: * The role of nutrition * The drugs that help * Surgical options * Alternative therapies * Managing symptoms and making daily life easier * Handling relationships with family, friends and work colleagues * Support group resources Providing reliable, empathetic and up-to-the minute information this is an invaluable guide for sufferers and their families.
