Inflammatory Bowel Disease

Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (IBD) is a group of chronic inflammatory disorders of colon and intestines. Out of the various types of inflammatory diseases, the most common ones are ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease. Crohn’s disease affects mouth, esophagus, stomach, small intestine, colon, and anus while ulcerative colitis affects colon and rectum. Symptoms involve swelling, sudden weight loss, exhaustion, vomiting, anaemia, arthritis, and abdominal pains. Although, there is no known cure for ulcerative colitis and crohn’s disease, the treatments aims to relieve the symptoms currently experienced by the patient. Although causes of IBD are unknown, they are generally attributed to genetics, diet, microbes, and as a side-effect of other intestinal infections. Treatment includes surgery; medical therapies like, antibiotics, immune-suppressants, aminosalicylates, among others; nutritional and diet therapy, microbes, through the use of fecal transplants and stem cell therapies, if available.
