These have become very common over the last few years and I am seeing many patients with diverticulitis, crohns, irritable bowel, ulcerative colitis and wind and bloating.
With inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) are chronic inflammatory diseases of the gastrointestinal tract (GIT). The most commonly affected parts are the distal ileum and colon, but inflammation may also affect any part of the GIT from the mouth to the anus. IBD may present at any age but the onset peaks between 15 and 40 years of age.
Crohn’s Disease is chronic inflammation involving all layers of the intestinal wall and any part of the gastrointestinal tract although it most commonly affects the ileum and the caecum.
Nutritional deficiencies due to malabsorption are common.
Ulcerative Colitis is a chronic non-specific inflammatory bowel disease involving the mucosa and submucosa of the colon. It usually includes the rectum and is characterised by uniform and continuous ulceration and bloody diarrhoea and rectal bleeding.
