Are you struggling with diarrhea, rectal bleeding, abdominal pain or weight loss? It could be inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), and you’re not alone.  

IBD is a group of intestinal disorders that cause chronic inflammation in the digestive tract. Ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease are both examples of IBD. Conditions like these affect millions worldwide. Many people don’t realize there’s help available, so they suffer through frequent flare-ups. But help IS available here. 

The experts at the Nebraska Medicine Frederick F. Paustian Inflammatory Bowel Disease Center specialize in treating these conditions. They understand how disruptive these conditions can be, and know how to determine the source and treat the symptoms. 

What to expect during your first visit 

During your first visit, you’ll meet with a health care provider who specializes in treating IBD.  

They’ll carefully note your personal history, the symptoms you’re experiencing and ask some questions about your quality of life. They use this information and any other medical records you provide to create a personalized treatment plan just for you.
