Inflammatory Bowel Disease

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a term used to describe conditions which affect the gut namely Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn’s Disease.

Both cause inflammation in the gut and can lead to symptoms such as:

  • Pain, cramps or swelling in the tummy
  • Recurring or bloody diarrhoea
  • Weight loss
  • Extreme tiredness

A person may experience all or some of these symptoms.

It's unclear what causes IBD, but a combination of factors is thought to play a part.

These include:

·         genetics – you're more likely to develop IBD if you have a close relative with the condition

·         a problem with the immune system

People who smoke are twice as likely to get Crohn's disease than non-smokers.

Q&A

What should you do if you think you have Ulcerative Colitis or Crohn’s Disease?

If you suspect that you are at risk of either of the above, you should speak with your GP to receive a diagnosis as many digestive disorders have similar symptoms.

Once you have a diagnosis, booking an appointment with a Dietitian will be your next step. A Dietitian can help you to optimise your diet and lifestyle to manage your condition and prevent progression of the disease.
