INFLAMMATORY BOWEL DISEASE

What is Inflammatory Bowel Disease?
Inflammatory bowel disease is the name given to several similar disorders of the intestine. The primary problem is that the lining of the intestine is inflamed and irritated, and easily damaged.

What are the Symptoms of Inflammatory Bowel Disease?
The symptoms may include diarrhea, with or without blood and abdominal cramping. These symptoms may evolve slowly over several weeks, or they may begin suddenly.

What is the Cause of Inflammatory Bowel Disease?
The cause remains unknown, though it does not appear to be an infection with any known bacteria or virus.  The underlying problem seems to involve an allergic reaction in which some cells in the body make antibodies to attack other cells in the body.
