In this area you will be able to:
- Propose, vote on, and discuss research ideas
- View current studies
- View published research
Here, you can submit a research idea to the community, cast your votes, and discuss research ideas proposed by other members. Please make your research question as specific as possible. Other members will vote on your research idea, and we will prioritize research ideas with the most votes.
You are allowed to vote for your own proposed research idea if you want. However, you can only vote for a total of five research ideas. If you have already cast your five votes and an idea you like even more is proposed, you can change your votes at any time to reflect your current preferences.
The research team will review all submitted ideas and provide a response to you and to the community. If your idea leads to an IBD Partners Study, you will have the opportunity to serve as a patient collaborator on the research team for that study.
We encourage you to prioritize the ideas that are most important to you, even if the research team determines that your idea is not a good fit for IBD Partners. We will share ideas labeled “Not a Good Fit” with researchers outside of our network when appropriate. We want to make sure all of your votes count!
Thanks for your participation in this important platform to help the IBD research community understand what research questions are important to patients. We are passionate about finding answers to your questions!
I propose a study of a non-GMO diet for Crohn's and UC patients. With an emphasis on understanding the rising rate of diagnosis in the US and Asia regions versus the EU region which has banned GMO.
Provide data which could should a causal effect in the increase of diagnosis in specific regions which allow GMO products.
I have my colon removed because of Ulcerative Colitis, I want to know what kind of supplements (vitamins) I need to take, which are the ones that absorbes thru the colon and I will not have enough.
Because other patients can be in the same situation and is important to know what to do
Does analyzing an individual's microbiome to determine what foods are good or bad for them help in entering remission for IBD patients by reducing inflammation compared to other diets popular for IBD?
I have read about different companies that analyze an individual's gut microbiome to determine what foods they should avoid versus eat more of as a "superfood" for them as an individual. Is this a better approach to a diet for IBD patients to promote intestinal healing and overall health compared to other popular diets such as SCD or Mediterranean. It is increasingly stressed that each individual be treated as such so would this individualized diet approach also help achieve remission.
Does the use of (prebiotic) inulin and/or fructooligosacharides help maintain or increase the gut barrier? Does it reduce IBD relapse? Is it safe? What is the optimal dosage? Any contraindictions?
If the use of prebiotics reduces the onset of UC (or chrohn's) or decreases relapses, then that would be a health improvement.
I propose a medical professional research and develop a supplimental drink for crohns and uc patients to aid in digestive health that minimizes impact of allergens and reactions and promotes healing from the inside out.
I struggle eating pills that dont digest well, can a doctor not create something that takes guessing out of supplimenting diet by creating something specifically for crohns patients that includes good probiotics, essential vitamins and nutrients and is allergen and chemical free.
Is there disease activity index reduction from supplementing with Vitamin C (pills vs food-source)? Is the effect increased by melatonin supplementation?
My IBD unexpectedly went into remission when I added orange juice to iron-rich meals to fight tiredness/anemia caused by rectal bleeding. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5886961/ https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/31155592-ameliorative-effect-of-high-dose-vitamin-c-administration-on-dextran-sulfate-sodium-induced-colitis-mouse-model/ https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5408742/ https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4735700/ https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20676767 https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11697548
Diet has a big part to play with patients and disease.
Are probiotics effective in people with total Colectomy and Short Gut Syndrome? And what type of probiotic is best for this condition or are they worth it at all.
After a long history of Surgery including Sepsis an unsettled gut means Nausea which means lack of appetite,which leads to fatigue etc...
