Specializes in Gastroenterology

UC/Crohn's : Ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease are inflammatory diseases which tend to be chronic. Certainly the flares can last for a month or longer, but we do have good medicines these days to get them under control. To treat this you need a gastroenterologist who treats these diseases regularly. It is important to follow their advice closely. Good luck.
