Can IBD be inherited by the children of IBD patients?

Yes, IBD tends to run in families.

The siblings and children of patients with IBD have a greater risk of developing the condition compared to the general population. This hereditary risk is greater in CD than in UC.  However, genetics is not the only factor and many environmental factors also contribute to the development of IBD.
