Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a general name for chronic diseases that cause inflammation in the gastrointestinal tract. The two most common types of IBD are Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis.

If your child has been diagnosed with IBD, chances are you have a lot of questions. This time of diagnosis can be confusing and overwhelming. We are here to help.

Commonly asked questions include:

  • What is IBD?
  • Why did this happen to my child?
  • What can we expect when visiting our doctor?
  • How is IBD diagnosed?
  • What medications are used?
  • Will my child be ok?
