Proctologist Questions Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Is IBD a heriditary disease?

My father had IBD and now, I have been diagnosed with it as well. What are the chances that my son will have the same disease too?

Crohn’s disease runs in families, ulcerative colitis less so.
You can inherit a predisposition but not the disease itself.
