Readers Respond: What Not to Buy for Someone With Inflammatory Bowel Disease

Be the first to respond


Updated December 01, 2013

From the article: Gifts for People With IBD
Some gift ideas that are touted as good for just about anyone, such as chocolate or wine, may not be the best choice for someone with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Other poor gift ideas might be medical aids such as a pill holder or something that goes in the bathroom such as a shower chair. Be careful with gag gifts, because while some people love them, others might be offended or take them the wrong way. Have you received a gift that just didn't go over well? What was it?
