Ulcerative Colitics - Overview
Ulcerative colitis is a disease that causes chronic inflammation and sores (ulcers) in the lining of the large intestine (colon). It usually affects the lower section and the rectum. But it can affect the entire colon. In general, the more of the colon that are affected, the worse the symptoms will be. The disease can affect the people of any age. Both men and women are equally affected by it. But most people who have it, are generally diagnosed before the age of 30.
Causes of Ulcerative Colitis
The exact cause of it is unknown. Experts think that it might be caused by the immune system overreacting to normal bacteria in the digestive tract or other kinds of bacteria and viruses may cause it. You are more likely to get this problem if other people in your family have it.
