The Men of IBD


Today is Friday. So that means it is my time for suggestions on who to follow and read. This week, I want to highlight the men of IBD. There are so many good men out there advocating that I couldn’t even begin to name them all. I will tell you of some of them and if you know of anymore or want them highlighted in the future, drop me a line at aguywithcrohns@gmail.com and I will post them in a future post. So without further delay here is my list of The Men of IBD.

http://www.ihaveuc.com/ – Meet Adam. He has written books. He has YouTube videos. He has a website dedicated to helping people with UC. He also has Ulcerative Colitis.

http://www.crohnsdiseasesn.com/ – This site is run by a number of moderators but was started by Jason Leitman. He also has a group by the same name on Facebook. Check it out.

http://www.intenseintestines.com/ – This site was started by Brian Phillip Greenberg. He has IBD and doesn’t let it slow him down. He runs, hikes, climbs..he does it all. He is an inspiration for all of us. He shows us that even though we have a chronic disease, we don’t have to let it run our lives.

http://crohnology.com/ – This site was started by Sean Ahrens. This is a great site to help meet people with IBD in your area.

http://www.crohnsdiseasesupport.co.uk/# – This site is run by Peter Buckers. This website shows that IBD is not just a local disease but worldwide. He also runs a great Facebook page called Bowel Disease One Global Family.

http://storify.com/SCDPat – Pat Leger. You see him all over. He is on Facebook and Twitter. If you see him, say hi..he is such a great guy. He is also known for being very successful on the SCD diet.

http://beingapatient.blogspot.com/ – Michael Seres aka the guy with the intestinal transplant. Read what it was like to go through intestinal failure and a transplant while also fighting IBD.

http://www.foulbowel.com/ – John Bradley. If you haven’t read his book yet, read it. It is about his experience with IBD.

http://ucvlog.com/ – I was on the fence to include this one today, but I will. It is a great site, but I was on the fence because 2 people run it, one of which is a woman. But the other is a great guy – Dennis Frohlich. Nadia – You are wonderful too :) Both have IBD and make some great video’s.

Well, that is my list for today. Again, if I missed anyone let me know. If you have a website, send me a link to check out. Have a great weekend and hopefully it is a pain-free one.
