1. Ulcerative colitis could occur basically at any age depending on the individual, but in most cases it is below thirty years old which in some people it may prolong up-to when they are in their fifties or sixties.

2. As far as race is concerned, the whites tend to have a higher risk than the African Americans as well as the Asian though the Ashkenazi Jewish have an even greater risk that any other race.

3. Another risk factor is when you have a family history of ulcerative colitis maybe a very close relative that has or suffered from this disease before, then your risk of getting down with the same will be a little higher .
