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.

Re: Ileitis

Hi, thank you for your reply. I had a gastroscopy then two weeks later a colonoscopy. The doctor doing the colonoscopy told me my Ileum was ulcerated. I then went to see my rheumatologist regarding my Psoriatic Arthritis and told him about my colonoscopy, he looked up the results for me to save me waiting for my gastro appt and he said it looked like crohns then he said well if its in the ileum, they call it Ileitis, and told me to wait for the gastro consultant to tell me what they will do. He said it wasnt related to my arthritis like UC sometimes is. Hence the waiting to see what happens next. Thank you.

Re: Ileitis

I checked out another posting you made regarding colon ulcerations...do you have them there as well?

I still suggest you get a copy of the report for your records and research...especially since it's your first one with a new diagnosis.
