Inflammatory Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
Inflammatory Bowel Syndrome, also known as IBS, occurs when all or part of the digestive tract is inflamed. IBS is a term that actually refers to several different conditions. The most common two are Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn’s disease. Ulcerative Colitis is an inflammation of the colon or large intestine. Crohn’s disease, on the other hand, can affect any part of the gastrointestinal tract. Symptoms of IBS include abdominal pain and cramping, diarrhea, blood in the stool, fever, weight loss, and iron deficiency.
