Couple nights ago I finished reading "IBD self-management." Overall, a great overview of many of the topics, covering Crohn's, U.C., and IBD in the other forms it comes in. Chapters are dedicated to the most important questions: what is it, what treatments are available, when is surgery an option, how should you change your diet, and how should you adapt your lifestyle.
As good a job as the book does at covering all of that in an informative, accessible way, it was too brief on a lot of the topics I really wanted to know more about. For example, although the chapter on diet has good information about the importance of fiber and its various forms, there isn't much useful advice on forming a diet around your disease, or specific foods that most people have trouble with. Likewise with the lifestyle chapter. Although I understand that everyone experiences IBD differently, more guidelines and information would have made the book significantly more useful.
One other omission is what IBD does to you as a person. Dr. Kane includes anecdotes about her patients and mentions that depression and other behavioral problems are associated with IBD, but neither of these conveys are addresses this side of the disease.Read more ›
