Share the AGA Patient Education Section in the April 2020 issue of Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology (CGH) to help your patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) understand what types of treatments are considered complementary and alternative medicine (CAM).
The National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine defines CAM as a group of varied medical and health care systems, practices and products that are not looked at as part of conventional Western medicine. These may include changes in lifestyle, diet, and nutrition, and the use of herbal treatments, vitamins and medical marijuana.
This is the last of a series of articles that is being published bimonthly in the AGA Patient Education Section of CGH on what patients need to know about living with IBD. The series can be found in its entirety in the AGA GI Patient Center.
The “What patients need to know about living with IBD” series was reviewed by Deborah D. Proctor, MD, AGAF, and David T. Rubin, MD, AGAF.
