A few weeks ago, the CCFA had a webcast focusing on IBD, diet, and nutrition.  I wanted to participate, but couldn't because of a work meeting I had to attend.  The transcript is now available!
 
I thought some of you might like to check it out.
Symptoms began in November 2008, ~4 weeks after giving birth to my son.
Eased for ~3 weeks in December, possibly b/c of probiotic use?
Returned in January 2009 (with a vengeance), diagnosed with pancolitis on January 30.
Currently taking Asacol (400mg 4 pills 3x daily), Rowasa nightly, 40mg 30mg 20mg 15mg of Prednisone (quick taper), Culturelle probiotic, and Zoloft (25 mg).

The link doesn't take one to the transcript, but going through the list of articles and clicking on "transcript" of that section takes one to the actual transcript.

Thanks for the link...I haven't read it through, but it's definitely worth to do so.

That's really weird that it doesn't work!
If you go to CCFA's main page (www.ccfa.org), the link to it is about mid-way down the page.
