All About Crohn's & Colitis
Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis are chronic diseases characterized by inflammation of the digestive tract. Often marked by an abnormal immune response that involves an interaction between genes, environmental factors, the immune system and an alteration in the gut microbiome.
Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis are chronic diseases characterized by inflammation of the digestive tract. Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) is an umbrella term that includes these two major gut disorders. IBD is often confused with another common gastrointestinal condition known as irritable bowel syndrome, or IBS. Although IBS and IBD share similar names and certain symptoms, they are distinct disorders. The major difference is that IBS does not cause inflammation.
Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis are both marked by an abnormal immune response that involves an interaction between genes, environmental factors, the immune system and an alteration in the gut microbiome. These diseases have many similar symptoms including chronic pain, diarrhea, weight loss and fatigue. Differences include the location (Crohn’s is not limited to the gut) and the way each disease responds to treatment. Medicines, changes in diet and surgeries are disease management strategies, but patients will experience periods of remission and relapse.
Inflammatory Bowel Disease has been around for centuries, but over the past few decades rates have soared to millions of patients. Scientists are researching causes and new treatment options. The gut microbiome is a fascinating topic of this research. No single microbe is at fault, rather the community of microbes may have shifted into an unhealthy state. IBD patients tend to have a less diverse and less stable gut microbiome than healthy people. IBD is associated with fewer anti-inflammatory microbes, such as B. fragilis, and more inflammatory species that provoke the immune system, such as invasive strains of E. coli. One day soon we may be able to restore good digestive health by manipulating each patient’s personal microbiome.

I absolutely love this item. Thank you so much!!💕
The perfect addition to my collections. Thank you knick knack
I was delighted when I found the World's Smallest GI Joes. My son has a complete set of figures and mobiles. I was wondering how I could add to his collection. I saw these at Knick Knack and was thrilled. I was even more thrilled when I saw the prices. I immediately ordered one of each. They arrived quickly and in perfect condition. I look forward to shopping here again.
Very cute little Care Bears! They make me so happy. This is a fantastic price for all four, and they shipped pretty quickly! If you put the pastel and multicolored bears together, they'd look like a mini version of my childhood teddy bear.
Super well made. Fast shipping. Safeky packaged. Very happy. Will return to buy more. :)
The kids are the perfect gift for family and friends. My only suggestion is to try and protect them by individually wrapping each when shipping multiple kids. I’m really pleased with the quality.
I love it!!
Item arrived quickly with no problems!
I wanted a dreamhouse for my 70s dollhouse and this is perfect. It was delivered very quickly and went directly into a 1/12 playroom. The best part is the tiny Ken though. He is a wonderful addition to the dollhouse.
I love this mini Barbie dream house! I got the real thing for Christmas when I was a kid. It was well played with and it’s nice to have a mini version to display as the real dream house just wouldn’t look quite right on my desk at work. (🤔😊) Thanks for such a creative way for adults to tap into their fondest childhood memories & be able to enjoy a mini version. Super cool idea!
