Signs and Symptoms of Ulcerative Colitis
Ulcerative colitis typically begins making itself known at some point between the ages of 15 and 30, but it can be developed at just about any point in life. The cause is most commonly thought to be related to an autoimmune problem, and it’s known that factors like stress and other environmental variables can exacerbate the symptoms. These symptoms can be mild or quite severe, and typically include:
- Bloody stool
- Weight loss
