Inflammatory Bowel Disease - IBD
Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) is a group of inflammatory conditions of the colon and small intestine. It usually presents itself in two different forms: Crohns Disease and Ulcerative Colitis.
Although both Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis are different diseases, they have very similar symptoms: abdominal pain, vomiting, diarrhea, rectal bleeding, cramps weight loss and even anemia.
Generally, there is a difference in the location and nature of the inflammation. Crohn’s can affect any part of the gastro-intestinal tract from the mouth to the anus and is more likely to trigger malabsorption and chronic vitamin and nutrient deficiencies. Ulcerative colitis starts in the ileum and is restricted to the colon and the rectum.
