Ulceritive Colitis

Were you looking for information about Ulcerative Colitis? Ulceritive colitis is a common misspelling of ulcerative colitis.
 
Ulcerative colitis is a type of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) that can cause rectal bleeding, diarrhea, urgency to have a bowel movement, and other problems. It can be difficult to diagnose, because the symptoms are similar to those of other intestinal disorders, as well as to the symptoms of another IBD called Crohn's disease.
 
Without surgery, ulcerative colitis typically isn't curable, so it often requires lifelong treatment. Such treatment involves making certain lifestyle and dietary changes, which can help minimize symptoms.
