World IBD Day : Patients should not take lightly the presence of blood in defecation - Dr. Devesh Prakash Yadav

Varanasi. May 19 is observed as World IBD Day across the world. The purpose of celebrating this day is to raise awareness on the page. It is an emerging disease and its outbreak is increasing continuously. It has an equal effect on men and women. IBD is more common in adolescents and young adults between the ages of 15 and 35.

Dr. Devesh Prakash Yadav (Associate Professor, Department of Gastroenterology) has told that this is called inflammatory bowel disease (inflammatory bowel disease) which is a group of disorders that cause irritation in the intestines. The cause of IBD is generally unknown and experts believe it is due to abnormal activity of the immune system (the body's defense system) of the sufferer. Other causes include genetic and environmental causes. Stress and certain foods can also aggravate the symptoms.

IBD includes two disorders, which are as follows, one is Crohn's disease (CD) and the second one is ulcerative colitis (UC).
According to Dr. Yadav, if a patient is suffering from symptoms like diarrhoea, urgent need to defecate, abdominal cramps, blood in defecation, weight loss, loss of appetite and fever, then he should consult a gastroenterologist for these symptoms. . If a patient is found to be suffering from IBD, he should not panic as it is possible to lead a normal/almost normal life by keeping IBD under control.
We all know that the corona virus that causes Kovid-19 is still spreading and affecting the lives of many people across the world including India. In this, there has been increased concern about the risk of infection in IBD patients and the management of their treatment.

According to Dr. Yadav, there is no evidence of an increased risk of COVID-19 when suffering from IBD. Patients are therefore advised to continue their current treatment of IBD and keep symptoms at bay. If the disease is uncontrolled, patients can consult their doctor for any changes in dosage/treatment. Along with this, the patients should also follow the instructions given to the general public to prevent the spread of corona virus. If an IBD patient experiences symptoms of COVID-19, he may stop treatment for IBD for a few weeks. But patients should not stop or change the dosage of IBD medications without first talking to their doctor.
Under the guidance of Dr. Devesh Prakash Yadav, Associate Professor, Department of Gastroenterology, Institute of Medical Sciences, IBD Clinic is being run every Thursday in Sir Sunderlal's OPD Room 305 from January 2021. Dr. Yadav says that every Thursday, 30-40 patients with IBD come to the IBD OPD clinic. Whereas in the General OPD operated on Tuesday, about 10 patients come to IBD. He told that the mortality rate from IBD is less than 5 percent but due to negligence in it, it can be life-threatening.
