1 doctor agrees

In brief: Many

Symptoms of ibd in a child can be very subtle.
Linear growth delay, poor weight gain, iron deficiency anemia, decreased bone density...To name a few. Of course there is abdominal pain, blood in the stools, and diarrhea but these are more overt signs.

Agree, it would be difficult to link to IBD in a child as the symptoms are nonspecific.

Abdominal bloating, cramps, significant diarrhea, sometimes with blood in it.
