Ulcerative Colitis Treatment

Treatment options depend on the severity of the patient’s condition, and may include medication, lifestyle changes or, in severe cases, surgery.

Medication

Prescription anti-inflammatories, corticosteroids, immunomodulators and antibiotics may be selected to help with inflammation.

Lifestyle Changes

The best way to help minimize ulcerative colitis flares is to manage your daily health. Avoid foods that cause flare-ups, eat smaller meals, reduce stress and increase exercise.

Your Granite Peaks provider will provide tips on changes you can make to manage your ulcerative colitis and avoid illness.

Surgery

This is obviously the last step if all other treatments have been unsuccessful. Having your colon removed is a decision best made between you and your doctor to address your individual healthcare needs.

Our gastroenterologists work with you to determine the least invasive, most effective, treatment for your condition to get you back to your active lifestyle.
