Symptoms of Crohn's and colitis can negatively impact your quality of life and ability to engage in daily activities such as work, school and social engagements. Symptoms may differ from person to person, and they can relapse and remit (come and go) for long periods of time.

Symptoms of IBD can include diarrhea, constipation, blood in the stool, anal itching or irritation, bloating and gas, fatigue, nausea and vomiting, loss of appetite and weight loss. Understanding the the causes of these symptoms and how they are managed is key to living well with IBD. Management stategies may include lifestyle and dietary changes, medications, medical cannabis and more.
