Immunoglobulin G (IgG() is This is type of immunological missile or antibody that is responsible for the body’s ‘memory’ of previous encounters with an outside stimulus. It is essential for vaccinations and immunisations and is thought to be implicated in food intolerance.
Inflammatory bowel disease is a chronic inflammatory condition of the bowel. It comes in 2 forms, Ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease. Ulcerative colitis only affects the colon and is characterised by superficial inflammation of the lining of the colon resulting in diarrhoea, blood and mucus production. Crohn’s disease can affect any part of the bowel from mouth to anus and is characterised by much deeper inflammation which ‘skips’ areas of healthy bowel so it is possible to have several areas of inflammation going on at the same time. It can cause pain, weight loss and diarrhoea. Both are treatable but at the moment, not curable.
