Mucus colitis: A gastroenterologist is best qualified to evaluate, advise and treat you for these two disorders. Dietary measures are important in both conditions. If you cannot identify triggering foods in your mucus colitis episodes, the gastroenterologist may recommend the fodmap diet and may prescribe antispasmodic medications like bentyl (dicyclomine) to control episodes of colitis.
