Can there be a natural remedy/cure for lymphocytic colitis (a rare form of colitis)?

See below: The first step in managing this disease is to stop nsaids (e.g. Ibuprofen) and all other offending agents (e.g. Omeprazole, sertraline). The drug of choice for treatment is Budesonide and an anti-diarrheal agent (loperamide). Other than that, gluten-free diet may be of some benefit.

I was diagnosed with lymphocytic colitis 4 years ago and given entocort ec for treatment. Will it ever go away for good or is it a lifelong illness?

Unclear: The long term prognosis is not known in this rare condition. My hunch would be that yes, you will likely be on some form of treatment for the long run. But only your GI doctor can answer that question fully. Ask him or her on your next visit.

Could my lymphocytic colitis be causing my issues? Nausea, vomiting, upper right quadrant pain after fatty meals. Hida scan showed ef of 95%

Maybe: Most people with lymphocytic colitis have diarrhea. It can certainly cause n/v/bloating. Localized RUQ pain is likely different. Get the colitis under control and c what happens. There is no test to determine otherwise.

Please suggest what food should be avoided for ulcerative colitis?

Ulcerative colitis: Many patients with ulcerative colitis have intolerance to gluten and fat. Try lowering gluten, by decreasing wheat products in your diet. Try avoiding fatty foods, and/or adding a bile binder like Questran (cholestyramine) to your diet. The goal of diet therapy is to achieve 2 soft bowel movements daily with a bowel regimen.

Soft foods: Every person has different foods they can and can't tolerate. It also depends on what kind of colitis you are dealing with, and if there are any complicating factors (like lactose or gluten intolerance). Things to consider trying would be yogurt, eggs, cooked apple, soft bread, real peanut butter, lactose-free milk, banana, plain cereals. Avoid caffeine if possible and hard granolas with nuts.

Pain under left rib evrrytime I eat like food is getting stuck there? What can I take with having colitis

Pain under left rib evrrytime I eat like food is getting stuck there? What can I take with having colitis

Dysphagia: Pain or the sensation of something getting stuck in the esophagus after eating is often due to irritation of the esophagus. There can be multiple causes of this, the most common being gastroesophageal reflux disease. I would try over-the-counter ant acids first. Follow the directions with that medication, but if you're no better in 1 to 2 weeks, see your doctor. Good luck.

Please suggest what foods can I eat with ulcerative colitis?

I am assuming: Your colitis is in remission; anything you want that is generally healthy; many tho are more sensitive to dairy products so might be wise to avoid milk, ice cream, cheeses. If you are in flare a more bland diet with less fiber is best. Check with the doctor managing your colitis and meds.

Could you tell me what are really good foods for ulcerative colitis?

Could you tell me what are really good foods for ulcerative colitis?

No specific diet: Many diets have been tested for ulcerative colitis, but there is no evidence to support any particular diet. Some people feel like certain foods bother them, but that is different for each person. So listen to your own body. But most of all, see your gastroenterologist and make sure you are on medical therapy for ulcerative colitis, because diet alone will not control colitis.

I was diagnosed with acute colitis three months back and treated. What kind of food should I eat to stay safe? Is drinking beer ok (1-2 times/month)

I was diagnosed with acute colitis three months back and treated. What kind of food should I eat to stay safe? Is drinking beer ok (1-2 times/month)

Depends: On individual, but some people find that reducing dairy products is helpful, as well as difficult to digest foods (corn), and foods that produce lots of gas (broccoli, asparagus, cauliflower, beans). Alcohol is not good, and I would not recommend it. Others find that reducing gluten in their diet may help. Still others find no problems with any foods at all. You should address? To GI doctor.

Good balanced diet.: There are a groups of food that are not good for colitis patients these include certain grains and nut. Beans, coffee and tea, broccoli, seeds corn, mushrooms, alcohol and soda. On the other hand a good well balanced diet is fine. If you consult a nutritionist you will find there are a lot of foods for you to eat.

Is there any chance that the E.histolytica that cause ulcerative colitis to return after taking antiamoebic drug? Could the fsat food be a cuse of it?

Is there any chance that the E.histolytica that cause ulcerative colitis to return after taking antiamoebic drug? Could the fsat food be a cuse of it?

Let's clarify: Entamoeba histolytica doesn't cause ulcerative colitis but it can mimic it. It can return whenever you're re-exposed or if the Rx didn't kill all the organisms. "Fast food" isn't the cause of ulcerative colitis. You need to find out what you've got -- especially if it's true ulcerative colitis, being a well-educated patient is key to getting a good outcome.
