Ulcerative Colitis Help in Dallas

Like Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis is under the umbrella of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). If you have UC, your immune system has worked overtime, causing inflammation and ulcers that could be in your rectum and your colon.

Whereas evidence of Crohn’s disease can be found in patients from their anus to their mouths—anywhere along the GI tract and throughout the layers of the tissues, UC is limited to the innermost lining of the colon. It often affects adults before age 30.

I Can Help You Be Proactive

man holding stomach with painYou don’t have to suffer in silence from ulcerative colitis. By working with you, I can help your body learn how to control its inflammatory response.

After a comprehensive stool test, I can see the different markers for inflammation and better understand what your system may be triggered by. I can better see the underlying reasons for your UC symptoms, and determine more about your digestive function and the bacterial components.

The stool test gives me many answers, and I can work with you to develop a proactive plan, including diet, supplements and lifestyle changes, to improve your daily well-being and reduce the effects you feel from ulcerative colitis.

Symptoms of Ulcerative Colitis

The symptoms of UC may come and go. People with this type of inflammatory bowel disease may experience:

  • Abdomen pain and cramping
  • Chronic joint pain
  • Blood and pus in the stools
  • Diarrhea
  • Anemia
  • Fever
  • Fatigue
  • Weight loss

More severe complications of UC can lead to the removal of portions of the colon. You may also experience severe bleeding, dehydration, swelling of the colon and perforations, and even colon cancer. According to the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation, up to 30 percent of people with severe ulcerative colitis require the surgical removal of the colon within one year of being hospitalized for UC for the first time.

Your immune system plays a huge role in how you experience ulcerative colitis, just as it does with Crohn’s. You may have underlying food allergies, a taxed nervous system, food sensitivities, bacterial or microbial imbalances, or drug reactions your immune system is trying to heal, and in turn the result is a flare of ulcerative colitis.

Though we may not know a direct cause for UC, those who suffer from it know these stressors often trigger it.
