The Long Road to IBD Diagnosis
Last updated: June 2018
In our recent 2017 IBD In America survey, the community told us that getting a diagnosis can be difficult! 62% of respondents needed over 5 office visits before they received a diagnosis and 57% of respondents were misdiagnosed prior to receiving their IBD diagnosis. This month we're focusing on the journey to diagnosis - and all the trails and tribulations of that journey. We hope you'll take some time to tell your own story!
