Childhood treatment gives your child an advantage. Of the million people in the United States that are affected by IBD, a group of conditions involving the colon and small intestine, 25 percent developed the disease during childhood. Starting high-quality care to manage these conditions in childhood gives your child an advantage in life. Tell your doctor this is where you would like him or her to send your child for care.
