Ulceitve Colitis

Were you looking for information about Ulcerative Colitis? Ulceitve colitis is a common misspelling of ulcerative colitis.
 
Ulcerative colitis is an inflammatory bowel disease. It can cause rectal bleeding, urgency to have a bowel movement, and diarrhea. The condition can be difficult to diagnose at times, because the symptoms are similar to those seen with other intestinal disorders, including Crohn's disease.
 
The exact cause of the disease is unknown. However, it is possible that genetic factors, environmental factors, an overactive immune system, or an infection may play a role. Because the condition is typically incurable, lifelong treatment is necessary.
