Re: Ileitis

Hi...How were you diagnosed...colonoscopy, upper gastro scope, etc?
The common meds for initial IBD, depending on where you have inflammation, are 5ASA (mesalamine), steroids (topical or systemic), immunomodulators and biologics.

Who sent you for the tests and who diagnosed you with ileitis?
Do you have a copy of the results? if not, I'd suggest you get one so that you're prepared for your gastro appointment with a list of questions and knowledge of what's going on.
