This week we met Kishore Pardasani! Kishore was diagnosed with UC when he was in college and struggled to find the right treatment for his disease. Eventually he decided to manage his disease through a permanent ostomy. As he was learning to navigate life with an ostomy he was underwhelmed by the tool available to help him track his supplies, measure his output, and manage his ostomy. That lead him to develop an app called OstoBuddy! OstoBuddy worked well for him and so he decided he needed to offer it to others living with ostomies. He applied for the Lyfebulb challenge addressing the unmet needs of the IBD community and was selected! We hear his whole riveting story, we brainstorm ways to improve ostomy supplies, we talk about the craziest thing he did after being diagnosed with UC, and what it was like to grow up in Barbados. It was such a fun conversation!
