Discussing Pediatric Inflammatory Bowel Disease

In this video from Children’s Hospital Wisconsin, Courtney Rademann hosts a Facebook Live Q&A session with pediatric gastroenterologist Dr. Joshua Noe about children with inflammatory bowel disease.

What it’s like growing up with inflammatory bowel disease.

Dr. Noe and Ms. Rademann talk about various aspects of inflammatory bowel disease in children including the fact that the hospital diagnoses around 50 new cases each year and the typical age of onset is during the preteen and teenage years (although they do occasionally treat patients with very early onset IBD who are generally under the age of six).

The duo talk about how Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis are diagnosed in children, the most common symptoms and the types of treatment available, including lifestyle changes and diet.

Explaining Crohn’s disease to children can be difficult. Learn more here.

    Really liked the doctor very much. For the girl: sorry, you looked unprepared, please next time do much more research about the topic you going to make an interview about. The questions repeat themselves, some which might have been very important for the IBD patients (newest treatments, alternative treatments (FMT), side affects, etc) and their parents have not been asked at all.
