IBD Myths.....

....and how many of us have heard this one eh?!
FICTION: IBD is all in your head.

FACTS: IBD is not imaginary (diagnosis depends on the presence of inflammation in your gastrointestinal tract), nor is it caused by psychological problems. On the other hand, IBD can lead to anxiety or depression. These issues are often associated with any chronic illness and are not the nature of IBD itself.
