If you have recently been diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis (UC), Crohn’s Disease, or another form of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) you may be feeling a sense of relief that you have a diagnosis that explains why you have been so unwell. You may also have many questions about your illness running through your mind.

This booklet has been written as a brief introduction to Crohn’s and UC for anyone affected by these conditions, including families and friends. We hope you find it helpful.
