click on the one called “Glamour Guts” – it’s a 3.5 minute short film that won a short film award in Canada. It’s about IBD. GREAT. not spam :)


**32 year old female; Diagnosed with ulcerative colitis in 2001; diagnosis changed to Crohn's disease in 2009 (but still only impacts colon)
**Asacol (4800 mg daily), 6-MP (100 mg daily), Prednisone (10 mg daily...for a few more weeks), Nexium (40 mg daily)
**Previous meds: Colazal (allergic); Flagyl (off and on for rectal inflammation); Rowasa (enemas only when needed); various pain meds (but luckily none lately); iron IV infusions (when hemoglobin gets low)
**Thankfully only two major flare-ups...2001 and 2009. Hoping to have another 8 years in between the next one (sadly, I do know there will be a next one).
