Ulcerative colitis is a chronic, inflammatory bowel disease that causes problematic inflammation of the digestive tract. Those who suffer from ulcerative colitis develop ulcers, or sores, in the digestive tract. The disease can be debilitating and may lead to life-threatening complications in severe cases.
There is currently no known cure for ulcerative colitis. However, treatment therapies are available to combat symptoms and improve the quality of life for those with ulcerative colitis.
