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.


PAC Moment: IBD & Sun Safety

Sun safety is important for everyone, but if you are living with IBD (and taking certain medications) it may be even more important for you to protect your skin from the sun.


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.


PAC Moment: A Positive Spin on Feeding Tubes

In honor of Feeding Tube Awareness Week (February 8-12, 2021), Makenna shared a little about her experience with a feeding tube and how she views it in a positive light!


Episode 9 of the imPACt podcast - IBD Psychology

It was definitely a fascinating experience making this podcast episode where my fellow PAC member, Maha and I interviewed Dr. Jennie David. I especially enjoyed learning more about her profession and remember thinking that I didn’t even know IBD Psychology was its own subfield.


Through sharing our stories we not only help to heal others but we also heal ourselves

Hello, my name is Adrielle and I am a 17-year-old rising senior in high school. I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis when I was 16 years old. Something that most people do not know about me is that I have a love for fashion. I channel this love by designing and creating my own clothes with my sewing machine.



We can use our shared experiences to create resources we wish we would've had.

Hi everyone! My name is Maitri, and I attend the Ohio State University (yes, the "the" is obnoxious but absolutely necessary). I am majoring in Neuroscience, and plan on attending medical school! I also work as a part-time PCA at Nationwide Children's Hospital. I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis when I was 15. An interesting thing that most people don't know about me is that I am trilingual - I speak Gujarati, Hindi, and English!


PAC Moment: Holiday Stress & Eating

Last December, @ICNPatients shared how holiday stress and eating can affect IBD and their wellbeing. We are re-sharing today, because we are coming into the summer holiday season. With more gatherings and food offerings on the horizon, we hope you'll take a PAC moment to learn how patients with IBD might experience these celebrations:


Episode 7 of the imPACt podcast - IBD & Identity

Did you miss us? We briefly interrupted our regular, every-other-Friday podcast release schedule. It was for a really good cause though - we released a special episode of imPACt to celebrate World IBD Day (May 19) and talk about the importance of Advocacy! Now we're back and hope you'll join us today for our chat about IBD & Identity.
