    • Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) is a chronic, life-long condition of the gastrointestinal tract, which various parts of the digestive system, such as the bowels, become swollen, inflamed and ulcerated. This inflammation can disrupt the healthy functioning of digestion, nutrient absorption and waste elimination.

      At present, there is no cure for IBD, and the disease may recur many times in a person's life. It is treated with medicines and sometimes with changes in diet. If the disease is in remission (not causing symptoms), treatment may not be needed, although medicines may help keep the disease in remission. A severe attack may require that the person be hospitalized for treatment. In some cases, surgery may be needed.

      Jiahui IBD Clinic is provided by a multidisciplinary team of IBD gastroenterologists, colorectal surgeons, pathologists, radiologists, psychologists, nutritionists and pharmacists for patients with ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease, pouchitis, microscopic colitis, lymphocytic colitis and collagenous colitis. We also treat conditions that can accompany IBD and complications from longstanding disease.

      The clinic offers advanced medical diagnosis and treatment options with a personalized experience for every patient, including: comprehensive treatment plans encompassing medical treatments such as biologics, nutritional optimization, endoscopies, and minimally invasive surgeries to improve quality of life. 

    • Symptoms of IBD may include: 

      • Abdominal pain: intermittent pain in the lower abdomen or around the umbilicus, frequent feelings of incomplete defecation; pain usually relieved after defecation; if the pain worsens or becomes consistent, it may mean the disease has progressed


      • Frequent diarrhea (with blood or pus): repeated occasions of diarrhea, may have blood in stool, 2-3 times per day when mild and up to 10 times per day when severe


      • Gastrointestinal bleeding: often manifested as frequent blood in the stool, causing anemia or shock in severe cases


      • Nausea, vomit, bloating, loss of appetite


      • Fever, unexplained weight loss, fatigue


      • Intestinal stenosis or obstruction: severe abdominal pain, bloating, abdominal mass, constipation


      • The inflammation may also affect other parts of the body, leading to mouth ulcers, conjunctivitis, arthritis, dermatitis etc.
