hay everyone, i was given a book today by my doc and after reading a bunch of it have found it to be the some of the best info i've been able to find on colitis and crohns. i haven't finished it so i don't know how far indepth it goes but i've seen material covered from smoking, to steroids (the diferent common kinds as well as the reults/sideeffects), to diet, to surgeries, to meds, ect.
It seems to be great. i tel you this after only an hour with the book, because i read quite slowly, and thought i should send what little helpful knowledge has come my way to you folks.
the book is called: Mount Sinai Hospital
Crohn's & Colitis-Unerstanding and Managing IBD.
by: Dr.A. Hillary Steinhart MD, MSc, FRCP (C) Division head, Gastroenterology.
