  • The Great Bowel Movement. This bowel disease awareness group gives people the chance to tell their stories and kill the stigma around an illness that leaves many victims too embarrassed to open up.
  • Crohn’s Online. This site hooks you up with your own patient advocate and offers plenty of resource material.
  • Mayo Clinic. The world-famous medical institution has an excellent resource page for understanding Crohn’s Disease and finding the best treatment.
  • MedicineNet.com. This site has slideshows and quizzes to help you distinguish Crohn’s from other, less serious digestive ailments. This is particularly useful page, since this disease is very easily confused for other ailments.
  • WebMD. WebMD is goldmine of information on every conceivable medical condition, and the section on Crohn’s Disease is certainly part of that. The site walks you through symptoms, medications, dietary changes and visual guides.
