3.1 million Americans
LIVE WITH INFLAMMATORY BOWEL DISEASE
Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis affect 1.3% of the population with 70,000 new cases diagnosed every year. IBD is caused by a combination of genetic and environmental factors that lead to an abnormal immune reaction to the normal bacteria found in the intestine.
