I walked out of my favorite bakery today to see a Lialda ad on a Taxi cab. It did say welcome to DDW 2009, but ...

I find it jarring to see these in normal life (not in a doc office or health site/mag). In one way it's good to get information out there, but in another it makes me worry about the prevalence of IBD.

This one also made me feel sheepish, I was carrying a sandwich with stone-ground mustard on poppy seed bread. nono
Hope my stricture doesn't mind. smilewinkgrin
Hoping to stay in remission after the birth of a healthy baby girl. On Pentasa during my pregnancy, went med-free 2 months to nurse (stupid), but back on Pentasa and still nursing.

I had never heard of Crohn's untill ads for Humira started playing on TV. Drug ads are always so vague. I wondered what Crohn's was so I investigated. 6 months later I was dxed. I have discovered since that alot of people know a little about the Crohn's due to a family member or friend having the disease. I often wonder if the increased number of people talking about the disease is due to general public knowlage increasing or if more and more peolpe are being dxed and also if being dxed has increased due to better detecting by doctors or because of envioromental factors causing more peolpe to have the disease.
