(BPT) - A 2017 U.S. survey of 301 adults living with ulcerative colitis (UC) and 149 gastroenterologists (GIs) suggests that some patients may be suffering from symptoms that may impact their life choices. Here are some preliminary findings from the survey (see survey methodology below) that show how the daily impact of the disease combined with communication breakdowns may be creating a “new normal” for patients, along with some tips that may help some patients discuss UC disease management with their GIs.
