I've always wondered why there is so many more topics and posts for both the Crohn's and the Ulcerative Colitis forums then the other.
I don't think that IBD is more common then the other diseases but I seem to know more people with them then the others except for diabetes. My daughter's neighbor and best friend was just diagnosed with UC and a co-worker of mine also has Crohn's.
Does anybody have any ideas?
