Ulcerative Colitis

Ulcerative colitis is when the inflammation of the bowels occurs. Now as a result of this inflammation, there is a good chance that it may also cause ulcers in the lining of the rectum or the lower part of the colon.

This same inflammation may also cause the colon to empty many times a day thus causing diarrhea.

Colitis may happen at any age, but it is know to be more frequent between the ages of 15 years and 30 years. It is also more seen amongst the white population group rather than any other population group.

The more common symptoms for this, is blood in the stools associated with huge abdominal pain, but it can also cause fatigue, weight loss, anemia, loss of appetite, skin lesions, joint pains and lack of growth in children.

It is not really known what causes it, but certain foods and stress will bring it on.

The treatments for advanced colitis are mainly cortisone based, and do not cure the problem but are there more to manage the problem. The side effects of these medicines are detrimental, and should rather be avoided altogether if possible.

Sometimes the colitis if untreated gets so bad that hospitalization is required and ultimately the removal of the colon or the rectum has to be performed.

When this operation is performed a pouch needs to be worn permanently to collect the waste.

Another possible problem with untreated colitis is the risk of cancer.

It is therefore imperative to get yourself diagnosed as soon as possible if your are suffering from the above symptoms, to try avoiding the colitis from deteriorating further.

This book "Great Taste No Pain" has some very good permanent treatments that would help an early stage of colitis.
