It’s estimated that around 40 percent of IBD patients who have their condition under control still suffer from fatigue. In this video from Crohn’s and Colitis UK shared in June 2014, patients with inflammatory bowel disease discuss how they manage the fatigue that comes with the condition.
Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis patients talk about how IBD-related fatigue affects them in their everyday lives and what they do to help them through the worst of it, including exercising, eating well and taking supplements. They also explain their frustration with doctors who don’t seem to take fatigue into account when they talk about IBD and the symptoms of the disease.
