Preventing ulcerative colitis thanks to knowledge of your DNA

 Ulcerative colitis is a chronic, regularly recurring inflammation of the mucous membrane of the large intestine that results in the formation of ulcers. Symptoms of the disease include diarrhoea attacks, stomach pain, tiredness and fever. It is similar to Crohn's disease, although in the case of the latter inflammation occurs in the whole of the digestive tract and in the deeper layers of the intestinal wall. Ulcerative colitis mainly affects young adults.

Ulcerative colitis and heredity

The risk of ulcerative colitis is determined to some extent by hereditary factors. To date it has been scientifically proven that a number of genes play a role in this. On the basis of your DNA it is therefore possible to see clearly whether you have an increased or reduced risk of ulcerative colitis.
