Very unusual: Ischemic colitis typically affect the older population with intrinsic vascular disease and secondary factors such as tobacco use, dehydration (in sufficient intake or due to medication). It can also happen at times as a complication with certain procedures. Work with your doctor, make sure it is the proper diagnosis.
