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.

? Coliis: Abnormal liver tests in a patient with ulcerative colitis warrants an MRCP or liver biopsy to evaluate for duct disease. You should see a gastroenterologist who can review your work up so far. Mucous in stool is not a concern. Fodmaps can help symptoms of ibs and colitis or bloating.
