There are a few abbreviated terms we use here on the Uc forum that I thought I would put a post up in case no one knows what they are but don't want to feel silly for asking
However, please do not hesitate to ask any sort of question if you are unclear to what it means. You can't learn if you don't ask right??
NSAID'S = nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as Advil, Aleve, Naproxen, Motrin etc.
5-ASA'S = these are medications such as Asacol, Colazal, Rowasa enemas and Canasa suppositories
CD = Crohns Disease
UC = Ulcerative Colitis (I really hope we all know what THIS means
BUMP = we use this term to put a thread back to the top of the page for more responses and views
D = diarrhea
C = constipation
OT = (off topic) this is an off the topic of UC type post
DD, DH, DW, DS = dear or darling daughter, husband, wife, son
MIL or FIL = Mother or Father-in-law
If you have any more that I didn't cover, please feel free to post it!
