Support vital life-changing research into IBD

There is still a lot unknown about inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD). The conditions can be difficult to diagnose, hard to treat and many people living with Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis, the most common types of IBD, don’t have the answers they need to manage their disease well. 

Before research began indicating a connection between IBD and diet, the potential for food and stress to trigger symptoms was not raised by healthcare professionals and still many people diagnosed will not be referred to a dietitian or psychologist.

Over two-thirds of people with IBD do not have a dietitian as part of their healthcare team and only a tenth have a psychologist. Donate today and you are helping people diagnosed with IBD to take control of their condition.

“Further dietary research in IBD is crucial for clinicians, researchers and those living with IBD to understand how food affects inflammation, symptoms, mental health and quality of life in people with IBD as diet is a modifiable lifestyle factor that can potentially improve the disease course of those living with IBD.”
