Are you a digestive illness orphan without medical diagnosis? Or do you have a UC/Crohns diagnosis and get frustrated by the medical community’s enthusiasm for pumping you full of drugs that cause more problems than they solve and the looming spectre of having your colon cut out?
The purpose of this site and others like it is to reassure you that you are not alone and work together to find answers.
Carolyn May is an impressive survivor of GI illness. She recently launched a self-help website called Gut Intelligence which has been set up by patients, for patients. Gut Intelligence aims to help patients with chronic gut disorders by pooling our collective wisdom to research and share dietary and other approaches that have worked.
In particular the GI Team are very interested to explore if there are common factors which make these gut disorders more likely to occur. They are currently conducting a survey that they hope will stimulate future research to prevent these disorders arising in the first place.
Individually, we are one drop.
Together, we are an ocean.
