About Ulcerative Colitis
Ulcerative Colitis (UC) is a chronic inflammatory bowel disease that involves the inner lining large intestine (rectum and colon). The inflammation causes open sores (ulcers)to develop on the inner lining of the large intestine, that produce pus and mucous, and appears in a continuous pattern. UC belongs to a group of conditions known as Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (IBD). Ulcerative colitis may also affect the eyes, skin and joints. The exact cause of ulcerative colitis is unknown, but can happen at any age, usually between the ages of 15 and 30, equally affects men and women and sometimes runs in families. The inflammation tends to flare up multiple times throughout life, which causes recurring signs and symptoms. The different types of ulcerative colitis include: ulcerative proctitis, proctosigmoiditis, left-sided colitis, pan-ulcerative (total) colitis.
