Ulcerative Colitis

Man Experiencing Pain

Ulcerative colitis is a disease that causes inflammation and ulcers in the lining of the rectum and colon.

Ulcerative colitis can be difficult to diagnose because symptoms are similar to other intestinal disorders. Each person experiences ulcerative colitis differently, so treatments may vary.

Drug therapy may be used to maintain remission and to improve the quality of life for those with ulcerative colitis. Even though some people have long periods of time when the symptoms go away (remission), most patients’ symptoms eventually return.
