"Crohn's Advocate" magazine

Anyone else get this? It's a free publication, comes 4 times a year. They also have a website: www.crohnsadvocate.com
It's sponsored (I think) by the makers of Cimzia. This most recent issue was focused on nutrition; using a dietician's services, supplements, healthy meal choices, etc. Also it comes in a white envelope with no return address or anything else identifiying it as a magazine about Crohn's. Thought that was a nice touch.

Never heard of that magazine before! It is good to know that is made by Cimzia (just to know how the information may be biased) but I think I will check it out.

Funnily enough, the magazine publishers do a good job of not advertising for Cimzia but keeping the articles pretty focused on just crohn's

I picked up a copy at my gastro's office and subscribed from there. It is a good resource with a lot of helpful information. It really focuses on making the most of living with Crohns.

Hey shoobzl,

Might be better to post your question in the treatment forum, I think you will get more responses there.

Hey, I get this magazine. I grabbed a copy from my gastros office and signed up for the subscription. I think I got the first two delivered but haven't received one in a while. It's okay. Fun to read while at the gastros or in the bathroom!
