Irritable Bowel Dysfunction (IBD) is a group of chronic inflammatory disorders affecting the large and small intestine. The major forms of IBD include Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. The main difference between these two forms of IBD are the location and nature of the inflammation. Crohn’s disease can affect any portion of the digestive tract, from the mouth to the anus (although many cases begin in the ileum of the small intestine) and affects the entire bowel wall. In contrast, ulcerative colitis is confined to the colon and rectum and affects mainly the intestinal mucosa. Symptoms of IBD include abdominal pain, cramping, diarrhea, bloody stools, vomiting, nausea and weight loss.
Irritable Bowel Dysfunction may be the result of dietary factors, impaired digestion, antibiotic use, genetic predisposition, etc. The most common causes of IBD are bacterial or viral infections, along with immune dysfunction. A variety of micro-organisms have been implicated in the development of IBD, including various bacteria, amoeba, yeasts, molds, mycoplasmas, etc.
Hormonal changes may trigger IBD symptoms (80% of IBD patients are women). Studies show that IBD is often associated with other autoimmune and chronic inflammatory conditions. Arthritis, asthma, multiple sclerosis, type 1 diabetes and psoriasis are all seen with greater incidence in patients with IBD. IBD may be a causative factor in the development of uveitis, a condition involving chronic inflammation in the eye and sarcoidosis, a chronic disease marked by the formation of inflammatory nodules throughout the body, most commonly in the lung, liver and lymph glands.
