About IBD Teens

Hi! I’m Annelise, and I am seventeen years old. I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis in 2015, and my goal is to show teenagers with IBD that they are not alone.

Ulcerative Colitis is an autoimmune disease, and it is categorized as an Irritable Bowl Disease, or IBD. Ulcerative Colitis is also commonly shortened to UC. It is a chronic disease that causes inflammation in the digestive tract. There is no cure for UC, but it can be treated with a variety of medications.

A few years ago, I noticed that many blogs and books written about IBD are not suitable for teenagers and young adults. I made this blog for all the young people suffering from IBD, so they can see accurate advice from someone their own age. I hope that this blog helps you learn more about IBD. This is a safe community, so please feel free to ask any questions!
