Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) is a blanket term for a number of diseases including Crohn's Disease and ulcerative colitis. Symptoms of IBD vary, but may include diarrhea, fever, fatigue and stools containing blood, pus or mucus. Diagnosis of IBD is usually made before the age of 30, with those of Caucasian or Ashkenazi Jewish heritage most commonly afflicted. Tests to confirm an IBD diagnosis may include stool sample analysis, blood tests and endoscopic procedures.
