Unique app for IBD!

I’ve had Crohn’s for over a decade and have never seen an app or any product like IBD Healthline before. I love that it is a private and safe place to ask others who have gone through the same situations I have for their opinions and advice. Whether I just want to connect with people my age or ask a specific question, I can do it all in the app. I’m really proud to be a part of the IBD Healthline community!

Beyond Helpful

This app has everything I needed in a support group that got me through my tough times. I truly believe the support I got on IBD Healthline played a role in my recovery. It is nice to be able to ask and answer questions and talk with others about their experience. People that can relate! I would recommend this app to anyone struggling with IBD.

Finally I don’t feel so alone

I have lymphocytic colitis which if your googling it you can see there isn’t a lot of info for it. Or how to live with that type of IBD. One day I stumbled across this app which since it helps me everyday. I learn new stuff to help me get through the day.
