IBDU™ YouTube Channel
Starlight and the Children’s Digestive Health and Nutrition Foundation have partnered to create an IBDU™ YouTube Channel that provides video stories related to Irritable Bowel Disease and coping skills.
The six candid videos are an extension to the IBDU website, and the older teens in the videos address things like:
- STRESS - Major stress can give you mood swings, fatigue, and decreased concentration and memory. It can also have physical impacts like changes in heart rate and blood pressure, weight gain, and a weakened immune system. It pays to make time to manage your stress level.
- SCHOOL - College can be stressful — learn simple stress management techniques that will help improve how you feel by changing your actions and thoughts.
- WORK - Because you have a medical condition that affects so much of your daily life, it helps to know your rights in the workplace, and to take all the steps you can to make sure you’re protected.
