Hi. My 15 yr old son with Crohn's — diagnosed at 8– has recently had very good luck with weightlifting and a diet focused on building muscle as a way to increase his size and his overall feeling of wellbeing. He wants to share what he's learned with other kids and teens. He's also looking to connect with other kids who just want a safe space to talk about IBD and how it affects their lives. Please check out his private Facebook group Crohn's Teens Crushing It! and ask to join. He used to be so skinny that you could see his heart beating through his chest, and he's come so far and wants to pay it forward however he can.
