Iletis is an ailment that manifests in inflammation or irritation in the ileum, or the last portion of the small bowel where it connects with the large intestine. Signs and symptoms of ileitis can include those listed below:

  • Diarrhea
  • Cramping or discomfort in one's abdomen, or fistulas (abnormal tunnels that form between parts of the intestine)
  • Loss of weight

Ileitis might be a result of numerous diseases, Crohn’s disease being the most common. Alternate culprits can include infections, effects of ischemia, NSAIDs, and atypical growths. If you require care for ileitis in Phoenix, AZ, assistance is close at hand. Receive the treatment you need by connecting with a gastrointestinal specialist at your nearest Arizona Digestive Health location today.

The first step toward effective treatment of ileitis is to evaluate your symptoms and digestive health with a GI specialist. Your provider will assess your medical history and conduct a thorough physical exam. A series of tests might also be ordered in order to verify the diagnosis, including stool analysis, x-rays, barium x-rays of the small intestine, CT scan, colonoscopy (in which a narrow lighted tube is inserted into the anus for a close examination), and biopsy. If it's confirmed that you have ileitis, your physician will go over a course of treatment with you.

Should you feel that ileitis could be the source of your pain, reach out to Arizona Digestive Health to consult with a GI provider who can provide you with a proper treatment plan.

Depending on the findings of your diagnostic exams, treatment strategies for ileitis might include medications (such as anti-inflammatories, antidiarrheal, and immune-suppressing drugs) and supplements to help calm swelling and control your symptoms. Surgical intervention can be considered if symptoms cannot be managed by medications or in the event that complications develop. A surgical approach may be conducted to remove the diseased section(s), and/or address blockages, intestinal bleeding, and perforations in the intestine. You need to follow healthy lifestyle habits, get regular exercise, keep a healthy diet, and avoid smoking.
