Inflammatory Bowel Diseases or IBD is a group of inflammatory conditions of the small and large intestine. This disease arises as an outcome of the interaction of environmental and hereditary factors leading to immunological responses and inflammation in the gut. Some common signs and symptoms are defecation, anaemia, fever, abdominal pain, diarrhoea, rectal bleeding, severe internal cramps/muscle spasms in the region of the pelvis and weight loss. People suffering from IBD have a higher risk of getting affected by Colon cancer. 

This video talks about the various signs and symptoms of IBD in detail. Watch the video to understand the symptoms and the treatment of IBD, which includes mesalazine, antibiotics or surgery. A person is more prone to this disease with a family history, cigarette smoking, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications, age, race, ethnicity or geographic region. Hence, it is all about the proper understanding of the disease to look for possible cures. One can prevent this disease by eating healthy foods, exercising regularly and not smoking; however, a genetic IBD cannot be avoided.
