Treatment usually starts with Anti-inflammatory drugs to treat the inflammation of the bowel.
Immune suppressors: these drugs also reduce inflammation, but they do so by suppressing the immune system response that triggers the process of inflammation.
Other medications include antibiotics, pain relievers, anti-diarrheal medications and iron supplements to restore the deficiency.
Surgery may be an option, which usually means the complete removal of the colon. Your surgeon constructs a pouch from the end of your small intestine. The pouch is then attached directly to your anus, allowing you to expel waste relatively normally.
