Where can you learn more about Crohn's disease?

ANSWER

Knowledge is power. When you have a serious health condition like Crohn’s disease, it’s important to find out all you can about it. Your doctor should be your first resource. It helps to write down your questions before your visit and bring them with you, so you remember to ask all of them. You can also ask a relative or friend to come with you to your appointments and help you remember what your doctor said.
