Hello,I do understand!! Nobody in my family had any forms of IBD,although,I do "suspect" a cousin. Anyway,last Friday,I attended a very informative Pediatric GI conference (I'm a Pediatric RN),and I specifically asked the Peds GI,what is the percentage of my kids getting Chrohns since I have it,and according to him,it is 8% He did say,and my GI totally agrees that our world is too "sterile" now,people not allowing their kids to have pets,and play in the dirt,this also coincides with kids getting allergies. My kids should be o'kay,we have pets and they LOVE playing in the dirt!! HaHa!!!!!!!!!!!
Hope this is a little helpful
