What is Inflammatory Bowel Disease?

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is caused by chronic inflammation of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract and manifests through two conditions: Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis (UC). Crohn’s disease occurs when the tissues of the digestive tract swell, causing symptoms such as severe diarrhea, fatigue, abdominal pain, loss of appetite, cramping, and more. UC occurs when the digestive tract becomes inflamed and ulcers form. Symptoms of UC resemble Crohn’s disease, such as abdominal pain, cramping, loss of appetite, diarrhea and fatigue, but may also include symptoms such as bloody stool and rectal bleeding. The major distinction between Crohn’s disease and UC is the parts of the GI tract each disease impacts; Crohn’s disease can affect any part of the tract while UC affects the large intestine. Left untreated, IBD can be life-threatening and may begin to impact other parts of the body besides the GI tract. Treatment can include medication such as antibiotics, steroids, topic medications and immunosuppressants. In some cases, surgery may be recommended to repair blockages, abscesses, and fistulas, or to remove parts of the intestine that have been severely damaged by the disease.
