Diarrhoea & Constipation

Diarrhoea is one of the main symptoms of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), which includes Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis. Microscopic Colitis, another form of IBD, can also cause diarrhoea.

IBD treatment aims to control the symptoms and keep you in remission. Yet some people with IBD continue to have diarrhoea. This leaflet looks at why this might happen and includes some suggestions about ways to help reduce and manage diarrhoea.

Some people with IBD may experience constipation. This leaflet looks at the causes of constipation, and how you may be able to alleviate it.
