It would have been nice if the of sign up page's first info box was titled 'login name' instead of just 'login'. I just put what, not knowing what they really were needing Anyways, my bowel condition is a bit beyond SBS. I only have 3 feet of jejunum and my stomach. A foot of it does not work well. I had an ileostomy for 25 years before a butcher killed the rest of my small bowel. I have the shorten bowel since 1998. I say I am an expert for sure. A resident internist to be doc says he learning from me things that are not taught in the university. I left TPN dependency long ago due to a defunct medical center.

CoRDS, or the Coordination of Rare Diseases at Sanford, is based at Sanford Research in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. It provides researchers with a centralized, international patient registry for all rare diseases. This program allows patients and researchers to connect as easily as possible to help advance treatments and cures for rare diseases. The CoRDS team works with patient advocacy groups, individuals and researchers to help in the advancement of research in over 7,000 rare diseases. The registry is free for patients to enroll and researchers to access.
Enrolling is easy.
After these steps, the enrollment process is complete. All other questions are voluntary. However, these questions are important to patients and their families to create awareness as well as to researchers to study rare diseases. This is why we ask our participants to update their information annually or anytime changes to their information occur.
Researchers can contact CoRDS to determine if the registry contains participants with the rare disease they are researching. If the researcher determines there is a sufficient number of participants or data on the rare disease of interest within the registry, the researcher can apply for access. Upon approval from the CoRDS Scientific Advisory Board, CoRDS staff will reach out to participants on behalf of the researcher. It is then up to the participant to determine if they would like to join the study.
