Rush University is conducting a study on the influence of the SCD on gut flora. (The request to post re this study has already been approved by Peter).
The structure of the study is to compare the gut flora of IBD folks who SCD to IBD folks who do not. Where they are having a challenge is getting non SCD IBD folks to participate. All you have to do is send in a couple of stool samples, one urine and answer a couple of surveys. It really only takes a few minutes.
I have heard many complaints here re big pharma and how they never look for alternatives to expensive drugs. Well we have a group of doctors doing just that and they need our help.
Please go to the site at the end of this post and take a look and reach out to these folks. They do not promise miracle answers but the research they are doing could help all Cronies. We always talk about
the fact we have to help ourselves. Here is an important chance to do something that will give us some scientific proof of the impact of diet.
I am participating, so if you have any questions I can answer (from a participants point of view) please email me.
Hope you NON SCDers support this really important research on Crohn's
