What Is The Difference Between Colitis And Diverticulitis
Very different: Colitis is inflammation of the colon. It is commonly seen with inflammatory disease of the colon (ulcerative colitis). Any area of the colon can become inflamed with this. Diverticulosis is having small pockets that poke out of the bowel wall. Diverticulosis is when one of these pockets gets infected or inflamed. This is usually more localized, like in the left sigmoid colon.See 1 more doctor answer
Your doctor: Your doctor can talk to you about the differences between colitis and diverticulitis. Diverticulitis is an inflammation of the outpouching in the colon. Diverticular disease is an abnormal but common finding in the large intestine. Colitis is general inflammation of the entire large intestine.
Same work up!: When you have crampy abdominal pain with fevers or chills you can be diagnosed with colitis. Colitis is inflammation of the colon and can be due to infection, inflammatory bowel diseases or blood supply issues. Diverticulitis is caused when a small pocket in the colon pops and bacteria spills outside the wall of the colon. Ct scan is the best diagnostic tool.See 1 more doctor answer
Is there a way to reverse diverticulitis? Diet? Lifestyle? What causes it? How to prevent worsening? How to prevent future Colitis?
No.....: Not yet......you can control it. May be when stem cell therapy will be available...
No: These are two completely separate conditions although one patient can have both diagnoses at some point in time. It is very important to have a colonoscopy and GI/surgical evaluation to make the correct diagnosis as the treatments (medical and surgical) are very different.See 1 more doctor answer

At what point do you go back to the er? I I have diverticulitis&colitis and the diarrhea for it. I feel like im putting out more than I take in
Being sick: What is your heart rate? How often are you peeing? Any pain that is intractable? Are your lips chapped? Are you dizzy. The right answer in most class is not to go to the er, but to contact or see your family physician first.

I have colitis and diverticulitis, exp yellow liquid diarrhea with pain crampa and cant eat, is this a new problem or one of the old ones? Not typical
Colitis: I believe that your present symptoms are more typical of a colitis due to a viral intestinal tract infection rather than acute diverticulitis. Treatment would consist of rest, avoidance of harsh roughage, intake of adequate room temperature fluids and use of kaopectate to control diarrhea. Imodium to be taken only for severe diarrhea If symptoms worsen instead of gradually improving, see your MD
I have been told that I have diverticulitis and colitis. I am on oral cipro (ciprofloxacin) and Flagyl for both. How long for the meds to kick in and the diarrheatostop?
Confirm the dx: You first have to make sure that the diagnosis is correct. Diverticular associated colitis is a real entity, but it is less common than ulcerative colitis or crohn's disease. If a gastroenterologist confirmed that diagnosis with colonoscopy and biopsy, then sometimes antibiotics, such as Cipro (ciprofloxacin) and Flagyl may not work to stop the diarrhea. Other treatment options are possible.
People diagnosed with ulcerative colitis. Are they prone to othe bowel problems such as diverticulitis?
I am bleeding and passing clots out my rectum. One person said it was diverticulitis another said infective colitis and another said hemorrhoids pain?
Rectal bleeding: Are these diagnoses made by professionals? You need to have it checked, see a gastroenterologist.
I have had colitis and diverticulitis and have been hospitalized 6 times now this am I have red in loose stool however I ate red sauce yesterday. Could it be blood or the sauce.
It could be: Either or both, especially if you have diarrhea. Have your doctor check stool for occult blood, which can tell if the red color is blood or not.

Recurrent shingles with Post-Herpetic Neuralgia between outbreaks? There is a lot more to it but not enough space here.....?
Maybe HSV, not VZV: Shingles rarely recurs so frequently, but HSV2 (genital herpes) can do so, with recurrences anywhere from waist to upper thighs ("boxer shorts" area). 1) Retest next outbreak to confirm varicella zoster virus (VZV), and also PCR test for HSV. 2) Have an HSV IgG antibody test, expecting maybe positive for HSV2. 3) Continue valacylovir to prevent recurrences, whatever the cause. The drugs is entirely nontoxic, no reason not to take it as long as necessary. Good luck!See 9 more doctor answers
