Teen Outsmarts Doctors

In a timely fashion to Liz’s post on Lets Just Call it IBD, I just stumbled on this story this morning on the yahoo home page.  Apparently a teenage female had been sick with IBD-related symptoms for many years.

Lesson of this story is that we know our bodies well and we must be active participants in the identification and maintenance of our health care.

    I do accept as true with all of the concepts you have introduced
    to your post. They’re really convincing and will certainly
    work. Nonetheless, the posts are too short for
    newbies. Could you please lengthen them a little
    from subsequent time? Thank you for the post.
