In brief: Wide variety
Ibd is a spectrum of diseases that includes crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis and indeterminate colitis.
These disease may vary in their distribution and associated symptoms. Because it represents inflammation of the GI tract - and pain, diarrhea, bleeding and wt loss is common. It can also have extra intestinal manifestations - skin, eyes, joints, liver.
