A journalist for Healthline spoke with Loren Brook, MD, an assistant professor in the UC Department of Internal Medicine, about possible treatments for inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). In 2015, more than 3 million U.S. adults reported a diagnosis of IBD, an ongoing inflammation of all or part of the digestive tract, and includes two conditions, Crohn’s Disease and ulcerative colitis.
Brook, also a UC Health physician, explained the disease is usually lifelong but can be managed with relatively minor anti-inflammatory drugs such as oral mesalamine to immune-suppressing medications such as Remicade or steroids.
