Signs and Symptoms of Ulcerative Colitis

Ulcerative colitis typically begins making itself known at some point between the ages of 15 and 30, but it can be developed at just about any point in life. The cause is most commonly thought to be related to an autoimmune problem, and it’s known that factors like stress and other environmental variables can exacerbate the symptoms. These symptoms can be mild or quite severe, and typically include:

  • Inflammation
  • Bleeding
  • Constipation
  • Bloody stool
  • Cramping
  • Pain
  • Weight loss
  • Lethargy

Treating Your Ulcerative Colitis

Since there is no known root cause for colitis, there is no way to completely cure the issue so that it never returns. We can, however, help you manage your symptoms. By keeping them under control, you can relegate your ulcerative colitis to the background and return to your daily life without worry.

Steroids are often highly effective, as they help to address the colorectal inflammation that tends to sit at the heart of ulcerative colitis. By managing the inflammation in your digestive tract, the symptoms of ulcerative colitis are greatly reduced. These drugs can be administered via pill, enema, or IV if necessary.

Many instances of ulcerative colitis are caused by an autoimmune issue, in which case immune suppressors can help to lessen the severity of any colorectal inflammation that may be present. Making sure to maintain a healthy diet and managing stress levels are also effective ways to keep symptoms mild.
