Inflammatory Bowel Disease

Inflammatory bowel illnesses (IBD) such as Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis are characterised by persistent intestinal inflammation. Symptoms include abdominal pain, diarrhoea, and flatulence. Medications and surgery can be used to treat IBD flares and put the disease into remission.

IBD stands for inflammatory bowel disease.

Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis are included under IBD. Each affects the digestive system. Treatments can aid in the management of this chronic illness.

What are the IBD subtypes?

Types consist of:

  • The digestive tract is affected by pain and edoema due to Crohn’s disease. It can affect every region of the body, from the mouth to the anus. It affects the small intestine and upper portion of the large intestine most frequently.
  • Ulcerative colitis leads to inflammation and ulcers in the large intestine (colon and rectum).
  • The intestinal inflammation caused by microscopic colitis is only detectable under a microscope.

What triggers IBD?

Researchers are continuously investigating the causes of IBD in some individuals. It appears that three factors play a role:

One in four individuals with IBD have a family history of the disease.

  • Immune system response: Typically, the immune system combats infections. In individuals with IBD, the immune system misidentifies meals as foreign invaders. It produces antibodies (proteins) to combat this threat, resulting in IBD symptoms.
  • Environmental triggers: Individuals with a family history of IBD who are exposed to an environmental trigger may develop the disease. These include smoking, stress, the use of medications, and depression.
  • The intestinal inflammation caused by microscopic colitis is only detectable under a microscope.

What are the symptoms of IBD?

IBD symptoms might fluctuate. They may be moderate or severe, and may manifest abruptly or gradually. IBD flares are times when IBD symptoms are present. When there are no symptoms, a patient is in remission.

  • IBD symptoms consist of:
  • Abdominal discomfort
  • Diarrhea (sometimes alternating with constipation) or a pressing need to defecate (bowel urgency).
  • Gas and bloating.
  • Appetite loss or unexplained weight loss
  • Blood or mucus in the faeces.
  • Upset stomach.

How is IBD identified?

The symptoms of Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis are comparable. Both conditions cannot be diagnosed with a single test.

Your healthcare physician will inquire about your symptoms to reach a diagnosis. Your evaluation may begin with a complete blood count (CBC) and stool sample to detect evidence of intestinal inflammation.

following diagnostic procedures:

  • To examine the big and small intestines using colonoscopy.
  • Endoscopic ultrasonography is used to examine the digestive tract for inflammation and ulcers.
  • Utilizing flexible sigmoidoscopy to inspect the rectum and anus.
  • Check for symptoms of inflammation or an abscess using an imaging technique, such as a CT or MRI scan.
  • Endoscopy of the upper gastrointestinal tract, from the mouth to the beginning of the small intestine.

Capsule endoscopy utilising a swallowable camera capsule. As it passes through the digestive tract, the camera records photographs.
