    Why was the format changed anyway? It was so easy to manuever wherever we wanted to get, and now it is quite difficult. I'll work with it, but I don't much like it.

    Hi arbob,

    The Digestive Disorders Exchange was named to better tie in with the Digestive Disorders Health Center and its content. The health exchanges that are moderated like this exchange also have experts to help you answer your questions about your medical conditions.

    The Crohn's and Colitis Exchange is a support group that was developed for you. Community members also have the ability to create their own exchanges too.

    Please bear with us as we all get used to this new format. The Welcome exchange has some great tips navigating the exchanges and posting messages.

    Your feedback is also important and those comments are being passed on as well. Thank!

    - Annie

    I've worked with this new format and I still don't like it. Is there a simple way to get to the Crohns & Colitis Exchange without going here and there and everywhere? I had it set up before so one click got me to my support group. Not now tho. What am I missing? I'm willing to learn, so point me in the right direction.
    Annie_WebMD_Staff replied to arbob2's response:

    At the top of the Crohns and Colitis Exchange you will see a link at the top right hand "Bookmark This Exchange". Click on that link and that will add it to your watch list (that works like the old board's favorites). Once you add an exchange, it will show up on the left hand side navigation bar under My Exchanges (in green lettering).

    You can see all of the exchanges you bookmark by clicking on the Preferences link in the left hand side navigation bar as well.

    The Welcome Center Exchange has a bunch of tips to navigate too.

    HI Ms. Louise, How are you doing today?
    I was wondering if you could share some insight and info relative to the use of Depo-Testoserone IM with patients with long term UC that are currently receiving Remicade IV Tx. Are there risks relative to the 'activating' characteristics of Testosterone that would render it's use contraindicated or potentially suspect relative to facilitating colon cancer or at least, flare-up of UC Symptoms?
