• 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. We invite you to join us.

Connecting Teens with IBD

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. IMG_5946 (2).jpg
