Let me say this before we get started. The only real important issue regarding any IBD is the mucosal lining that sits upon and protects the tender skin inside your gastrointestinal tract. To discuss anything else is superfluous. Nothing else matters. Either you have it or you don’t. If you don’t then you are guaranteed to have lots of gastrointestinal problems.
This is a quick summary of the things I need to consider when assessing and treating all IBD’s. This is the 1st step in my method of assessment and treatment. See where you fit on.
IBS-Diarrhea: Loose stools sometimes accompanied by urgency. This is caused by inflammation of the bowel and is the body’s response to protect you by releasing water into the bowel to dilute your stomach acids and to move the matter out quickly.
