The iHaveUC site has been used by OVER 3,000,000 users since it began back in late 2009. My name is Adam (my wife Michaela is on the right), and I was diagnosed back in October of 2008 with ulcerative colitis. This website is dedicated to all the people of the world who are living with UC, as well as those amazing folks who know or love someone who has this often tuff-to-deal-with inflammatory bowel disease. I've spent over 10,000 hours since 2009 putting this website together, and I'm sure if you were hoping to find an answer to anything UC related...you've come to the right place.

Website Contributors

There have been over 1200 writers to the website so far since it began. These are 99% of the time people like me who have UC and have a story to tell, often with good helpful tips that can be of value to all of us.
