Inflammatory Bowel Disease (with referral from your GI doctor)
Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) involves chronic inflammation of all or part of the digestive tract. The two most common conditions associated with IBD are ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease. Both of these diseases often exhibit symptoms including severe diarrhea, pain, fatigue and weight loss. IBD can affect an individual medically and psychologically and can sometimes lead to life-threatening complications.
Your doctor will likely diagnose inflammatory bowel disease only after ruling out other possible causes for your signs and symptoms. To help confirm a diagnosis of IBD, you may have one or more of the following tests and procedures: Blood tests, Endoscopic procedures, or Imaging procedures.
Fever and fatigue
Abdominal Pain and Cramping
Blood in Your Stool
Unintended Weight Loss
The goal of inflammatory bowel disease treatment is to reduce the inflammation that triggers your signs and symptoms. In the best cases, this may lead not only to symptom relief but also to long-term remission and reduced risks of complications. IBD treatment usually involves either drug therapy or surgery.
