What Foods Make Collagenous Colitis Worse
Inflammatory disease: Microscopic colitis is an inflammation of the colon that causes persistent watery diarrhea. The disorder gets its name from the fact that one needs to examine colon tissue under a microscope to identify it.

I am presently taking Asacol (mesalamine) (Mesalazine) for Collagenous Colitis, can I take ibuprofen? Or will this damage my kidneys?
Not a good idea: Ibuprofen can increase the chance of kidney damage with Asacol. So can other anti-inflammatory agents like aspirin and and naprosyn (naproxen). It is not a good idea to take them together. In addition, anti-inflammatory drugs like ibuprofen can make colitis worse so it is best to take acetaminophen if you need something for pain. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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. ...Read more
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. ...Read more
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. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Try another PPI.: just because lansoprezole makes your symptoms worse does not mean that the other PPI's will do the same. I would return to your doctor to see if one of the others helps your gastric symptoms. If they do not, then one could consider high does ranitidine or consider the possibility that your symptoms may not be due to excessive acid. Further tests or medication trials may be necessary. Good luck. ...Read more
