No bones about it - Vitamin D & IBD

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.

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.

My niche will be to write about my experiences with different foods and UC

My name is Nikhil and I am 17 years old. I am currently a junior in high school, and I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis in September 2016, when I was 12.

Feeding tubes are something more people should know about

Hi, I’m Makenna and I’m here to talk to you about Feeding Tubes. In my experience, they are something not a lot of people know about and I want to change that.
