Determining the root reason behind ileitis is vital to efficiently address this gastrointestinal condition as well as to the treatment protocol decided by your provider. Your gastroenterology provider will analyze your medical background and perform a thorough physical exam. A set of evaluations might be ordered as well to verify the diagnosis that could incorporate stool analysis, X-rays, barium X-rays of the small intestine, CT scan, colonoscopy (narrow lighted tube is inserted into the anus for a close examination), and biopsy.

If you are concerned that ileitis may be the source of your pain, contact Indianapolis Gastroenterology and Hepatology to schedule a consultation with a gastrointestinal physician who can develop an appropriate plan for treatment.

Based on the findings of the diagnostic tests, ileitis may be treated and managed using medications including antibiotics, corticosteroids, antidiarrheal and/or immune-suppressing medications, and dietary supplements to diminish swelling and control associated symptoms. A surgical procedure may be indicated if symptoms cannot be managed via medications or complications present. A surgical approach is employed to remove a diseased part, and/or correct perforations of the intestine or blockages.
