Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)

Inflammatory Bowel Disease (also known as IBD) – such as Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis, is known to interfere with the biochemical makeup of urine and can increase the chances of renal stone formation. IBD patients may have diarrhoea leading to loss of fluids and important electrolytes which disturb the urine biochemistry. This is especially true of patients with IBD who have undergone intestinal surgery.
