There are various types of conditions that fall under the IBD umbrella, but one of the most common of them all is ulcerative colitis, which is a condition that causes long-lasting inflammation and sores and ulcers in the innermost lining of the large intestine (your colon) and your rectum.
Another of the common conditions that fall under the IBD umbrella is Crohn’s disease, which is one of the more commons types of inflammatory bowel disease. Crohn’s disease is known to be able to cause inflammation in any part of the digestional tract.
