Well Ive only been recently diagnosed with CD and can only wish it was "irritable". I agree, the world, probably especially journalists need to recognize the difference between IBS and IBD. The difference in tx and mx is totally different. But good on you for posting any information which gives us hope. I know I will do the same, after all the more we know the better informed and prepared we can be - we may even be able to avoid, or at least minimalize complications.
Keep an eye out for who's doing what! Thanks
