Inflammatory Bowel Disease
There are two main types of Inflammatory Bowel Disease: Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis. Both involve an overactive immune system that attacks and damages the GI tract. IBD is most frequently diagnosed with an endoscopy and colonoscopy, among other tests. About 25% of people with IBD are diagnosed before they are 20. We take great pride in the care we provide to our IBD kids. Here are some links to helpful information and websites about IBD.
