The blog “Evidence Based IBD” just posted a very timely article: IBD and Travel. In short summary and of note, even when in remission we IBD-prone types seem to have more difficulties during and after our vacations. Also pay attention to the bit on high-altitude and increased inflammation, which may include pressurized airline cabins! (And here we thought flying was preferable to a long car ride given the somewhat-easier access to facilities). We’re just plain screwed, there’s no other way around it.
