Navigating life with IBD and/or an ostomy comes with many questions. Sometimes we experience a new medical problem like joint pain and wonder if it is related to our IBD. In other instances, we wonder how fashion and our clothing choices are impacted by our ostomy. To help answer some of these questions we have created these Fact Sheets. Whether you’re newly diagnosed, wondering about an extraintestinal manifestation of IBD, or learning how to live your best life with your ostomy, we have resources for you.
These resources were made possible with the writing and coordination of Girl With Guts and medical student, Catherine Liggett, the generous support of medical reviewers Dr. Nathan Schomaker, and Dr. Kathyrn Vidlock, and writers and researchers Dr. Jennifer Speirs, and Girls With Guts Jenny Harrison, MS.
