    This is a very interesting study! My mother and her brother both have a varying type of Colitis, and do I and my Twin Brother has Chrones!I have always wondered whether the liklihood for me was increased because of my family history, especially interesting because we are all so different in our symptoms.

    I’m 30, I got hospitalised at 19 and diagnosed with crohn’s. I currently have a 28 year old brother who doesn’t have it and 2 daughters aged 8 and 6 who haven’t got it, the only other person in my family diagnosed with it to date is my grandmother on my mum’s side. I think my family could be perfect for the study. I live in Preston, Lancashire and would love to know more.
