Inflammatory Bowel Disease

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is an umbrella term used to describe disorders that involve chronic inflammation of your digestive tract. IBD involves chronic inflammation of all or part of digestive tract.

The exact cause of inflammatory bowel disease remains a mystery. Previously, diet and stress were suspected, but now doctors know that these factors may aggravate but don’t cause IBD.

The two most common conditions associated with IBD are the ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease. Both diseases often exhibit symptoms including abdominal pain, severe diarrhea, pain, fatigue and weight loss. Inflammatory Bowel Disease can affect an individual medically and psychologically and can sometimes lead to extreme complications.

  • Ulcerative colitis causes long-lasting inflammation and sores (ulcers) in the innermost lining of your large intestine (colon) and rectum.
  • Crohn’s disease is characterized by inflammation of the lining of your digestive tract, which often spreads deep into affected tissues.
