Talk with an Information Specialist

While our educational resources contain almost everything you might need to know about Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, there are some things that you’ll want to talk with a Crohn’s and colitis information specialist about.

Whether you’re looking for a specific resource, referrals to other organizations, or answers to questions you can’t find anywhere else, you can speak with helpful specialists at the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation’s Irwin M. and Suzanne R. Rosenthal IBD Resource Center (IBD Help Center), Monday thru Friday, 9:00 am to 5:00 pm EST:

For many patients with severe ulcerative colitis, the J-Pouch procedure can be helpful in returning patients’ quality of life. However, some patients who undergo the procedure may continue to experience symptoms and complications with the pouch. The article “Management of Pouchitis and Other Common Complications of the Pouch” from our IBD Journal discusses potential pouch issues and management strategies.
