Irritable Bowel Disease

Irritable Bowel Disease is the formal heading for Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, conditions which can result in debilitating abdominal pain, diarrhea and anemia. It is caused by the immune system mistakenly attacking the GI tract and is treated with various options for medication and/or surgical relief.
