I have had moderate to severe ulcerative colitis through the entire length of my colon for four years now. Recently, I decided to get more active in my management of the disease and this was the first book I picked up. I also began a blog recording what it is like to live with the disease. Check it out at nowucme.wordpress.com. I'm reposting my review of the book to help others find out all they can about their disease:

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.

I have had ulcerative colitis for over ten years. Before reading this book, I have always blamed climate, mold and diet for the disease (which I do believe plays a part, just not the only part). I am finally admitting I have this disease. My colitis was mostly dormant for years and then bam! I had three flare ups in the past year. Presently a student at UCCS, I went to the U library and checked out every book they had on the subject except the one on psychotherapy. (I'll get that one next time!) It did not take long to see, of the seven or eight books, this author had the most credibility and addressed all the topics necessary for me to speak intelligently with my doctor about my condition. I knew what my doctor was talking about when she brought up different antibiotics and why we would go that route (flagyl - ugh). Because I read the book, I realized my flare ups may have been caused by multiple visits to the endodontist for root canals. The antibiotics I took for the root canals, most likely, played a part. This book discussed ways I could have counteracted the antibiotics, so I will be ready in the future, though I'm hoping to never touch an antibiotic again. In any case, I recommended this book to my doctor and that she share it with all of her patients who want a better understanding of this disease. I skimmed the book in a few hours before a consultation with my GI doctor and put fifty post-it notes to mark what I needed. I now am buying this book to have as a reference. Compared to all the good and bad and miscellaneous information on the internet, this is the book I will go to first. Not only is she noted as the foremost authority on the subject from Mayo Clinic, she has cited all of her work. It is not just how she feels about the subject. As for not divulging more into diet, I respect that she only spent a small time on this subject as this disease is so vastly different for every person when it comes to that subject.

My gastronterologist urged me to buy this book immediately following my colonoscopy. He said it was the most well-written book on the subject. He was right, but then again, he's always right!

Very useful as a reference book. Written in layperson's terms so it's easy to understand. I have actually had a consultation with the physician who wrote the book and found her to be as personable and approachable as is her written style.

I have had UC for nearly 20 years and have read many books and srticles on it. This is one of the best. Explanations are clear with the right amount of medical jargon. Pratical suggestions.
