A new edition from one of the most respected and authoritative Crohn's and colitis experts.
Living with Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis can be a tremendous challenge, so actually understanding inflammatory bowel disease is the key to developing effective management strategies.
The first edition of Dr. Steinhart's book has over 50,000 copies in print and has been recognized by practitioners and patients alike for its invaluable information on the subject. This new edition will feature twenty per cent new content based on the most current evidence from the most reputable sources and it follows new standards of practice for diagnosis and treatment. This will include information on the possible underlying causes, clinical features, and effective treatments of Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis.
Additional case studies will be featured which help to demonstrate successful treatment at work and the interior pages have been redesigned to be even more accessible. Handy charts will summarize key information and "Did You Know" features will introduce new research findings in a friendly, easy-to-understand approach. The popular frequently asked questions section remains as does the friendly but firm approach that proved to be successful in the first edition.
While there is no ultimate cure for either condition, Dr. Steinhart's expert guidance will take patients a long way toward improving their health and quality of life, and providing reassurance to their loved ones.
