Possible causes of inflammatory bowel
Inflammatory bowel disease is not a single condition. It is the term for a group of disorders that cause prolonged inflammation of the digestive tract.The digestive tract is composed of the mouth, esophagus, stomach, small intestine, and large intestine. It is responsible for breaking down food, extracting the nutrients, and removing any unusable material and waste products. Inflammation anywhere along the digestive tract disrupts this normal process. This can be very painful.
nflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a collection of several diseases. Therefore, it does not have a single cause. However, some IBD has been linked to heredity. It can also be caused by problems with the immune system.
If you have a sibling or parent with IBD, you are more likely to develop it yourself. Therefore, scientists think IBD may have a genetic component.
This plays a role in IBD. Normally, the immune
system defends the body from pathogens. A bacterial or viral infection
of the digestive tract can trigger an immune response. The digestive
tract becomes inflamed as the body tries to fight off the invaders.
