What is inflammatory bowel disease?
On the Mayo Clinic Radio podcast, Dr. Edward Loftus Jr., a Mayo Clinic gastroenterologist, discusses diagnosing inflammatory bowel disease and treatment options. Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is an umbrella term used to describe disorders that involve chronic inflammation of the digestive tract.

Symptoms of IBD usually involve severe diarrhea, abdominal pain, fatigue and weight loss. IBD can be debilitating and sometimes lead to life-threatening complications. While there is no cure for IBD, treatment can reduce the inflammation that triggers your signs and symptoms, and, in the best cases, lead to long-term remission. Also on the podcast, Dr. Avni Joshi, a pediatric allergy and immunology specialist at Mayo Clinic, shares the latest research on the incidence of food allergies in different age groups.
