Ileitis is a GI problem characterized by irritation or inflammation in the ileum, the end of one's small bowel that joins the colon. Signs and symptoms of ileitis may include:

  • Weight loss
  • Diarrhea
  • Cramping or pain in the abdomen or fistulas (unusual openings that grow from one part of the intestine to another)

Ileitis may be a result of numerous diseases, though Crohn's disease is the most common. Other instigating factors may include infections, side effects of ischemia, NSAIDs, and atypical growths. If you require treatment for ileitis in Thibodaux, LA, assistance is close at hand. Receive the treatment you need by meeting with a GI provider at the Digestive Health Center location closest to you.

Pinpointing the primary reason behind ileitis is of the utmost importance to efficiently address this gastrointestinal condition. Your provider will assess your medical history and carry out a complete physical examination. A series of evaluations could also be ordered to confirm the diagnosis, which may include stool analysis, X-rays, barium X-rays of the small intestine, CT scan, colonoscopy, and biopsy.

If you feel that ileitis may be causing your pain, get in touch with Digestive Health Center to request a consultation with a gastroenterology provider who can create a proper plan for your care.

Following your provider's findings of your diagnostic assessments, ileitis might be managed and treated using medications like antibiotics, corticosteroids, anti-inflammatories, antidiarrheal and/or immune-suppressing medications, and supplements to decrease swelling and control related symptoms. Surgical intervention can be considered if symptoms cannot be controlled with medications or if complications present. Surgery can be employed to remove a diseased part and/or correct intestinal bleeding. It is important to adhere to healthy lifestyle habits, get regular exercise, consume healthy foods and quit or avoid smoking.
