Colitis vs. Ulcerative Colitis: What’s the Difference?

Your belly hurts. The diarrhea keeps coming. And you certainly don’t feel like eating. These are telltale signs of colitis. But which kind?

Colitis is a term used to describe inflammation in your large intestine, or colon. There are many causes, including ulcerative colitis (UC). That’s a type of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).

General colitis and ulcerative colitis can feel the same. You may not be able to tell them apart on your own. That’s where your doctor comes in. They have the tools to help you zero in on the right diagnosis and treatment plan. #crohnsdisease #crohnsandcolitis #crohns #digestivedisorders #ulcerativecolitis #webmd #shorts
