Just to clarify the use of symptoms to diagnose inflammatory bowel conditions. You know that you have passed from Ulcerative Colitis into Crohn’s when in addition to urgent diarrhea and blood in your stool- you find mucus in your stool. The mucus represents your body’s last ditch effort to protect you from your stomach acids devouring your intestines/colon.
If you suffer from crohn’s disease, you should have some accurate information about it.
1. Crohn’s Disease is not a disease. It is a manmade inflammatory bowel condition.
2. A crohn’s disease diagnosis just means that there is more damage to the colon than IBS- colitis or UC.
