Ulcerative colitis (UC) is a type of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). UC occurs when the lining of your large intestine (also called the colon), rectum, or both become inflamed.
This inflammation produces tiny sores called ulcers on the lining of your colon. Inflammation usually begins in the rectum and spreads upward. It can involve your entire colon.
Common symptoms of UC include
- abdominal pain
- increased abdominal sounds
- bloody stools
- rectal pain
- weight loss
UC may cause additional symptoms, such as
- joint pain
- joint swelling
- nausea and decreased appetite
- skin problems
- mouth sores
- eye inflammation
UC is a chronic condition. The goal of treatment is to reduce the inflammation that causes your symptoms to prevent flare-ups and have longer periods of remission. There are different medications used to treat Ulcerative Colitis.
For people with severe UC, removing the entire large intestine (as in a total colectomy) will end the symptoms, but also presents additional complications. Some people will eventually require surgery, but most do well with nonsurgical therapy and care.
