Exploring ulcerative colitis treatment and causes

If your morning routine has become nightmarish with abdominal pain and frequent diarrhea, you should not ignore it. You could be suffering from ulcerative colitis, a chronic disease associated with the inflammation of the large intestine or colon. This inflammatory bowel disease is similar to the Crohn’s Disease.

  • Tenesmus

Causes

Researchers are not certain about the causes behind ulcerative colitis. The primary causes are considered to be genetics, environment and the immune system.

  • Genetics – Doctors report that around 20% of ulcerative colitis treatment patients have someone in the family who has suffered from the disease. According to researchers, a defective gene has been identified that may be associated with this disease.
  • Environment – According to some studies, air pollution, food, hygiene and cigarette smoke may be the cause behind ulcerative colitis. The condition is more commonly found in the developed parts of North America and Europe.
  • Immune System – According to some researchers, ulcerative colitis may be because a result of the immune system’s response to a bacterial or viral infection. However, even after the infection vanishes, the immune system keeps working in the same way, causing the inflammation associated with ulcerative colitis.
