How Apple will transform Healthcare with the Apple Watch

I'm going to start this by saying that as for technology and platforms, I'm all in with Google...

With that being said, something like this could really get me to rethink my Android Nexus 6P and my Moto 360.

Health and being able to use technology to help bridge the gap between Doctors and Patients is very important to me.

While I'd rather stay all-in with Android and Google, I don't see Google Fit going in this direction.... Or atleast not in the degree so far that Apple has. I'm hoping that changes, because if it doesn't, Apple will win the watch and mobile device market. So much that it could even get me to switch.

What is Creeping Fat and What Does It Have To Do With #IBD‬?
A GREAT Article by +Amber Tresca of About IBD/Crohn's Disease

Creeping fat is a phenomenon found in patients with Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis (two types of inflammatory bowel disease, or IBD) that is still not well understood by the medical community.

I HIGHLY suggest reading this article! Well done Amber!!!

Traveling with #IBD and an #Ostomy‬...
New Blog Post on The Crohn's Colitis Effect Website

Almost a year ago, +Marisa Lauren Troy of JournalingIBD.org and I started a new series on The Crohn’s Colitis Effect YouTube channel called The Realities of IBD. One of the videos Marisa created was Traveling with IBD and an Ostomy. Since technically we are in Spring, heading into the Summer, I thought it might be a good idea to revisit this topic. Traveling can be difficult for people who are completely healthy, so you can imagine how much more difficult it can be when you have IBD and an Ostomy.

Check out the blog post and associated video for some great tips on traveling with an ostomy!

IBD Procedures and Surgery Webcast

In May of 2015, I had the honor of hosting an #IBDSocialCircle webcast during #DDW2015‬ called Preparing for Procedures and Surgeries.
The panel included +Amber Tresca of AboutIBD.com, from the Cleveland Clinic - Dr. Megan Castideo, Ryan Stevens of CrohnsGuy.com, Dr. Ali from The University of Oklahoma IBD Center, and +Marisa Lauren Troy of JournalingIBD.org

We talked about a wide range of issues when it comes to #IBD Procedures and Surgeries. The patient panelist gave us a first hand account of what it was like preparing for procedures plus what they went through pre and post operative. Dr. Castideo and Dr. Ali were instrumental in explaining why these procedures were needed, how they are performed, and what patients can expect from them. We even took the live audiences questions and had our panelist answer them.

The study shows that even patients who have previously failed or were intolerant to Anti-TNF-Alpha therapy had great results using STELARA.
