What is Ulcerative Colitis?
Ulcerative colitis is irritation or inflammation of the large intestine’s inner lining, also known as the Colon. The colon is the portion of the intestine that also involves the lining of the rectum. Reabsorption of water and excretion of waste products occur in the intestine. In terms of medicine, ulcerative colitis is classified as a inflammatory bowel condition. Ulceration and swelling are brought on by inflammation of the colon’s interior lining. In addition to rectal bleeding, it causes painful bowel motions and bloody diarrhoea. An autoimmune disorder also called as ulcerative colitis causes the body’s immune cells to attack its own organs. It alters the function of the rectum and intestines by damaging their lining.
