Ulcerative Colitis Symptoms Identified
Learn more about the symptoms of this particular inflammatory bowel disease
The inflammation and ulceration of the lower bowel that characterizes this particular inflammatory bowel disease causes a couple of "tell-tale ulcerative colitis symptoms": severe, chronic diarrhea and bloody, mucus-laden stools.
In the more advanced cases of ulcerative colitis, it is not uncommon for the bowel discharges to contain only blood and mucus. The longer this inflammatory bowel disease continues, the greater the risk of developing more serious problems like peritonitis, toxemia, and even cancer.
