There is an article in the Sept. 08 issue of Glamour and the headline is;
(and it's all in bold letters like that smilewinkgrin )
It's an article on autoimmune diseases.  I haven't had a chance to read it all yet but I thought I'd pass on the info in case anyone else would like to read it.

That's good to hear things like this are gaining more publicity in that kind of outlet. We need that kind of help and understanding. Hopefully that awareness will segue into willingness to research and take seriously. Is the article available online by any chance?

If we would read the secret history of our enemies,we would find in each mans life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility.

I read it a few weeks ago and don't have my copy anymore, so I'm going from memory. Basically that auto immune diseases are on the rise ,in young women mainly, and no one really knows why. But that its scary and we need to do more research. CD was mentioned but more attention was paid to other auto immune diseases. Its always good when any auto immune diesese research is called for.

CD 19 years offically, 29 unofficially. 3 resections '93, '95 '97
Symptoms constantly but all tests show only minor ulcerations. Currently having multiple episodes of gastritis with no known cause.

Prednisone, 6MP,Prevacid, B12 shots, Bentyl, Xifaxan.....
