What is IBD?

Inflammatory bowel disease is a term used for inflammatory conditions of the colon and small intestine. The main forms of IBD are Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, which are autoimmune diseases. Inflammatory bowel disease occurs when the body’s immune system attacks parts of the gastrointestinal system.
