Covid-19 and Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)

 Hello everyone! It's been a while since I've written, really that's because I'm feeling great, been in a long remission and life is busy with 3 children. I haven't forgotten this blog however, nor the community of all of us online, sharing our Crohn's stories.

I'm sure that if you're like me, what's top of mind is the pandemic. And many questions around Covid-19 and how it may affect us with IBD. What about the vaccines? Are they safe for us.

I have a Google alert set up that emails me occaisonal news that pops up about Crohn's and IBD. This week it sent me a great article that appears to be well researched (has link to a lot of source studies) that answers many of these questions. I thought I'd share with you, dear readers in case you're also wondering about these topics.

To be clear, I'm not familiar with this website and this isn't an endorsement. It appears to be a well researched article, but do your own verification and as always, talk to your doctor for professional medical advice!  https://www.verywellhealth.com/ibd-and-covid-19-risks-5180123.

I hope everyone is feeling as well as possible. Good luck and stay safe!
