Understanding Inflammatory Bowel Disease

By creating a personalized plan, we can help guide you away from your discomfort and help you enjoy a healthy digestive tract once more.

The Symptoms of IBD

One of the important things to remember about inflammatory bowel disease is that it can share symptoms with a variety of other colorectal issues. This makes an accurate diagnosis very important and is why we recommend coming in to speak with an expert. Some of the more common symptoms that come along with inflammatory bowel disease include:

  • Constipation
  • Diarrhea
  • Heartburn
  • Acid reflux
  • Leaky gut
  • Chronic bloating
  • Frequent gas

Types of Inflammatory Bowel Disease

Ulcerative Colitis

One of the most common types of inflammatory bowel disease is ulcerative colitis, which involves a gradual development of inflammation in the large colon. This usually only impacts a specific portion of the large intestine, and can often be confined to the inner lining of the colon or rectum. While there is no cure for this condition, we can help you to effectively manage its symptoms over the long term.

Crohn’s Disease

This inflammatory bowel disease can affect different portions of the digestive tract, but if it’s left untreated it can dig deeper and deeper into the affected tissues. This may ultimately cause severely painful symptoms. Crohn’s is typically seen as a chronic condition but can present acute symptoms that tend to begin and end without much warning.

Treating Your IBD Symptoms

With most inflammatory bowel diseases, there is no cure. This means that our focus will be on managing your symptoms and helping you find as much relief as possible. With the right treatment, most patients who suffer from inflammatory bowel disease can live normal lives, and only experience symptoms occasionally.

Your treatment plan will depend on the specifics of your condition, and will likely include anti-inflammatory measures to calm the inflammation at the root of the problem. Immune system suppressants can also help to ease the symptoms. If you’re interested in learning more about how we can help you find relief from the discomfort caused by inflammatory bowel syndrome, a member of our team is here to help! Simply reach out to us at our NJ office and set up your consultation today.
