Episode 24 of the imPACt podcast - Drs. Sunseri & Crawford talk Exclusive Enteral Nutrition with the PAC

Hello everyone - it's Fionna from the Patient Advisory Council communications team. I'm excited to share that after a bit of a break the PAC is back with an exciting new episode of our imPACt podcast where we chat about a commonly used, but often not discussed, IBD nutritional therapy.


Sometimes we're tested not only to show our weaknesses but to discover our strengths

Hi! My name is Fizza, and I am 17 years old. I was diagnosed in March 2021 with Crohn’s disease. One interesting thing people don’t know about me is that I love to do makeup. It’s like therapy to me.


I never liked avocados until after my UC diagnosis

I never liked them, but when my doctor told me avocados are filled with good fats and that they are a wholesome food loaded with nutrients, I decided to give them a chance. I was surprised by how good they tasted!


Gluten free pasta and vegan pesto are part of my UC diet

I've been sharing my experience with foods that I eat as a vegetarian living with ulcerative colitis. Today, I'm writing about my favorite way to eat pasta (hint: it's green). 


Exercise goes hand-in-hand with a healthy, balanced diet

In my first post I said that I wanted to write about my experience with foods that I eat as a vegetarian living with ulcerative colitis. For this post I felt like writing about something that's not food-related, but that I think goes hand-in-hand with a healthy, balanced diet. Today, I'm writing about exercise.


No bones about it - Vitamin D & IBD

Getting enough vitamin D is especially important for growing kids, because it is involved in bone growth, bone density and bone strength, and in growth itself. Vitamin D also appears to have other health benefits.


I've stuck with rice throughout my IBD journey.

In this post, I decided to write about another staple of my diet: rice. As someone from southern India, my diet has always included rice, but it has become especially important as I have tried diets that limit gluten.


Energy bars have been vital on my IBD journey.

Today, I am writing about another food that I think has been vital along my IBD journey: energy bars. Whether you believe these bars truly give you instant energy or not, they have been extremely helpful (and tasty) to me at many different points in time.


Episode 10 of the imPACt podcast - Body Image & Relationships with Food

Join us (Maddie, Fionna & Maha) as we build on a discussion we stated in Episode 2 of the podcast about IBD, Body Image and Relationships with Food


Eating eggs as a vegetarian with ulcerative colitis

Hi, my name is Nikhil. When I wrote my first post for LOOP back in April, I said I wanted to share more about my experiences eating certain foods as a vegetarian who lives with ulcerative colitis. I decided that the first food I wanted to talk about would be something that I really enjoy eating, so it was a no-brainer for me to choose to write about eggs.
