Treatment of IBD

IBD treatment depends on which type of irritable bowel syndrome you have. Since any area of the digestive tract can be affected, meaningful treatment will depend on the findings of the diagnostic testing, what area of the tract is being impacted and ongoing nutritional concerns and overall health conditions that could arise from having IBD.

In the cases of ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease, reducing stress, adjusting the diet to attain adequate nutrition, infection prevention, anti-inflammatories and other important medications will be incorporated into a complete IBD treatment plan to help our patient feel their best for as long as possible. Working closely with your gastroenterology specialist to manage your condition will keep you on track and avoid progression of the disease for as long as possible.
