What is Ulcerative Colitis?
According to The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, ulcerative colitis is defined as a chronic disease which causes inflammation—irritation or swelling—and sores called ulcers on the inner lining of the large intestine. The combination of inflammation and ulceration can cause abdominal discomfort and frequent emptying of the colon. Ulcerative colitis is the result of an abnormal response by your body’s immune system.
