Today we will tell you today is national what day. Until today, you did not know what IBD was. From now on, you will know that in addition, they even have a World IBD Day dedicated to them.
World IBD Day May 19
To find the origin of this world day, you must go to the official website (English) devoted to these inflammatory bowel diseases. It is indeed the Americans who have federated the energies of associations around the world to dedicate a day to better publicize these very debilitating diseases and organize the lobbying with the governmental authorities.
It is part of IBD but is not the only one. IBD includes Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, both characterized by inflammation of the lining of part of the digestive tract and causing destructive ulcers.
The causes of these diseases are still poorly understood, although a number of triggering factors, whether genetic, environmental (including tobacco) or immunological, have been isolated.
