The Ins and Outs of Inflammatory Bowel Disease

Education is a vital part of the Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) journey. If you have IBD, this booklet will help you to understand your condition and the treatments that are commonly used to manage it. The content is not intended to be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis or treatment. If you have any questions about your IBD or its treatment, make sure you speak to your GP or IBD specialist.

What is IBD?
In conditions such as IBD, our own immune system is triggered inappropriately and attacks itself. IBD is classed as an immune-mediated inflammatory disease (also known as an autoimmune disease) affecting the bowel wall. This abnormal inflammatory response can also affect other parts of the body, including joints, skin, eyes and bone, leading to significant disability and poor quality of life in some people.
