• Welcome to Crohn's Forum, a support group for people with all forms of IBD. While this community is not a substitute for doctor's advice and we cannot treat or diagnose, we find being able to communicate with others who have IBD is invaluable as we navigate our struggles and celebrate our successes.

[ANSWERED] What advice would you give to the newly diagnosed?


Super Moderator
Frequently on the forum we will see new members who have just been diagnosed with Crohn's or Colitis. They are often terrified, having just been told that they have a lifelong, incurable illness. They come here looking for information and answers, but it is all so new and shocking to them that often they don't even know what questions to ask. Is there any general advice you'd give to patients who find themselves in this scary position?
