Hi, I ask this question because both myself and my brother have it (although he has now had surgery). He was diagnosed at the age of 25 and myself at 26. My gran also has it, diagnosed about
age 35 and had active disease for 10 years then nothing until about
3 years ago when she had a flare and now takes asacol, she is now 86 and my cousin also has it she caught c-difficile 3 years ago and now has UC diagnosed at age 41. So my question is this are there others who have family members with the disease or is it just my family that have got a faulty gene.
