Inflammatory Bowel Disease
Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a group of conditions affecting the colon and small intestine. It is the inflammation of a patient’s digestive tract. The main types of IBD are Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. Crohn’s disease is the inflammation of any part of the gastro tract from mouth to the anus but often affects the small intestine. Ulcerative colitis is the inflammation of the large intestine and/or the rectum. Symptoms of these two IBD diseases are similar. These include abdominal pain, vomiting, diarrhea, rectal bleeding, constipation, loss of appetite, fever, severe internal cramps in the region of the pelvis, and weight loss.
