Inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD), which appear mainly in the form of ulcerative colitis (UC) and Crohn's disease (CD), represent complex disorders as documented by the wide variations found in clinical practice. IBD has an impressive impact on patients and society because the presentation of the disease occurs in the majority of cases at a young age and, depending on its chronic evolution, has the potential of causing lifelong ill health.
Patients suffering from this disease present symptoms and clinical situations often embarrassing and having deep impact on their quality of life. Considering the young age of this patient population and the long duration of the disease, the problem of adequate medical management has crucial relevance. Consequently, we realised an interdisciplinary IBD Unit in our hospital with the aim of improving our clinical results and developing closer and stronger contact with the patients.
The medical strategy should always take in account some critical points such as the type of the disease, the severity and extent, the clinical response and tolerance of drugs and the follow-up in terms of monitoring the quality of life and preventing possible complications.
