Ulcerative colitis

Ulcerative colitis is an IBD that only appears in the large intestine. Typically, only the lower portion of the large intestine is affected, but not always. Symptoms are diarrhea, belly pain, and bleeding, although some people also experience weight loss, fever, liver disease, eye problems, or joint pain. Most people with Ulcerative colitis experience months or even years with no symptoms. Only 5-10% of UC sufferers have constant symptoms. Changes in diet do not seem to make a difference for people with ulcerative colitis.
