CONDITION AND TREATMENT OVERVIEW

Inflammatory Bowel Disease

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) describes disorders that involve chronic inflammation of the digestive tract. There are two primary types of IBD:

  • Ulcerative colitis involves inflammation and sores (ulcers) along the superficial lining of your large intestine (colon) and rectum.
  • Crohn’s disease is characterized by inflammation of the lining of your digestive tract and can often involve the deeper layers of the digestive tract.

Both ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease usually are characterized by diarrhea, rectal bleeding, abdominal pain, fatigue and weight loss.

IBD can be debilitating and sometimes leads to life-threatening complications.

Anyone who has known someone suffering from Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis (UC) knows how painful and debilitating it can be. Since Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis patients have so little warning before needing to find a restroom, planning even the smallest outings can feel impossible. The disease’s agonizing bowel pain also makes it one that many sufferers keep to themselves.

Making matters worse, flare ups can feel completely incapacitating – often, Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis sufferers can’t even leave their bed during a flare up. It’s no wonder so many people with IBD have a high rate of depression in addition to their other symptoms.

While inflammatory bowel disease is a chronic autoimmune disorder with no permanent cure, there are treatments that provide relief from symptoms. Here’s how infusion therapy or injections for Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis can help calm symptoms and provide freedom.
