Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a term used to describe two diseases, Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn's disease.

In both UC and Crohn's parts of the digestive system (the gut), which includes the intestines or 'bowels', become sore and inflamed. Crohn's can affect any part of the digestive system from the mouth to the anus. UC affects the colon (large intestine) and rectum.
