    As a T2D with Crones I can totally relate to Sophie’s story. I get more understanding/smypathy for my diabettes than my Crones. It is no fun to always have to know where the bathroom is before you can relax and just live life. Great that you are giving this away through DMBooks.

    Actually, IBS (both Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis, aka UC) are both autoimmune diseases whose etiliogies are similar to autoimmune mediated type 1 diabetes. As for the treatments, these few are terribly effective although UC patients do have an option that is sort of equivalent to someone with type 1 diabetes seeking a pancreas transplant called J-Pouch surgery by removing the diseased (caused by the autoimmune response that destroys the lining of the intestine) portion of the bowel and creating an internal reservoir. Unlike a pancreas transplant, however, because the patients’ own tissues are used, no long-term immunosupressants are required.

    been trying for years to figure out what the world is going on – found one issue (lactose intollerance) but even after making the changes away from that there is still something going on and I still have IBS that makes it hard for me to leave the house to work (because I’m scared of eating something wrong and it kicking in and having an emberrising issue). DMBooks

    I’ve tried eating and going though other books on the market aimed at IBS, but thus far nothing has proven to be helpful and well medical wise the docs have been of help/use if figuring it out (they didn’t even believe the lactose issue till I was given milk while in hospital and whoopse bathroom rush (only couldnt since I was still cathed). I would love to find a book that might give the answers because living like this is NOT good for anyone (young or old).

    IBS is certainly distressing. I’m not sure if my type2 diabetes, my age (62), or diet cause this issue on occasion. I guess it could be all of the above! I have empathy for chronic sufferers.
