Dr. Oz has a place on his website where we can ask questions. Do you all want to ask him to discuss IBD on his show? That way people can be correctly educated about it (i.e. it's not IBS).
And you don't have to give your personal info when asking a question.

Interesting since this topic was talked about recently. Maybe those who talked about it haven't been on here as of yet.

Definitely send an email....seems he touches on lots of topics. I wouldn't expect too much indepth info..but if he does illustrations, it'll be cool.

I sent him an email last week, I think! I love him, and I would love to see him discuss IBD on the show.  Even if he only touched on it, it would educate a lot of people-most people in my life (including myself) had never heard of UC before I was diagnosed with it.
