How is ileitis detected?
Identifying the root cause of ileitis is vital to coming up with an effective treatment plan. Your provider will assess your medical background and carry out a complete physical exam. To verify the diagnosis, your physician may also order further tests, including stool analysis, x-rays, barium x-rays of the small intestine, a CT scan, a colonoscopy, or a biopsy.
Should you believe that ileitis might be the source of your pain, reach out to Gastroenterology Consultants to schedule a consultation with a GI provider who can give you an appropriate plan for your care.
What is the treatment for ileitis?
Depending on what your provider finds, they may recommend medications such as anti-inflammatories, antidiarrheal and/or immunosuppressant drugs, and/or dietary supplements to help you manage the swelling and other symptoms caused by ileitis. Surgery is indicated if symptoms are not managed with medications or if complications present. A surgical approach is employed to remove any diseased portion, and address perforations of the intestine or blockages. You need to keep up healthy lifestyle habits, exercise regularly, keep a healthy diet and quit or avoid smoking.
