Coping Successfully with Ulcerative Colitis,
This review is from: Coping Successfully With Ulcerative Colitis (Overcoming Common Problems) (Paperback)
Published by Sheldon Press, in the Overcoming Common Problems Series, this book is a new work by author Peter Cartwright, the former Assistant Director of the National Association for Colitis and Crohn's Disease (NACC).
Starting with a brief and simple explanation of what Ulcerative Colitis (UC) is and what is known about its' causes and affecting factors the author proceeds to take us through the whole process, in detail, from early symptoms to diagnosis, treatment, living with the disease and, finally, the prospects for future research and treatments.
Peter Cartwright makes use of simple diagrams and many personal testimonies to produce a book which is easy to read and understand; which is highly informative to both patients and relatives and which left this reader (a recipient of major surgery for UC)with optimism for the future treatment of this embarassing and debilitating condition.
I strongly recommend this book to anyone suffering from Ulcerative Colitis; living with and/or caring for someone with the disease or those who merely wish to understand better the nature of UC.
