IBD (inflammatory bowel disease)

IBD (inflammatory bowel disease) A group of chronic intestinal diseases characterized by inflammation of the bowel - the large or small intestine. The most common types of inflammatory bowel disease are ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease. The symptoms of inflammatory bowel disease include abdominal pain and diarrhea. The course is typically unpredictable. Symptoms tend to wax and wane, and long remissions and even the spontaneous resolution of symptoms are well known. The disease can be limited to the intestine or affect the skin, joints, spine, liver, eyes, and other organs. Although people of any age can have inflammatory bowel disease, the diagnosis is most commonly first made in young adults. The treatment involves the use of medicines and sometimes surgery, depending upon the type and course of the inflammatory bowel disease. Effective therapy exists for the majority of cases. Narcotics, codeine, and anti-diarrheal medications such as Lomotil and Imodium should be avoided during severe episodes of colitis because they may induce a toxic megacolon.
