Ileitis is a problem that manifests from irritation or inflammation in the ileum, or the last portion of the small bowel that meets the large intestine. Symptoms of ileitis could include:

  • Loss of weight
  • Diarrhea
  • Cramping or discomfort in the abdomen, or fistulas (unusual channels that grow from one part to another of one's intestine)

Ileitis could be a result of many diseases, Crohn’s disease being the most common. Other factors could include infections, side effects of ischemia, NSAIDs, and atypical growths. If you need treatment for ileitis in Tulsa, OK, help is nearby. Receive the care you need by consulting with a gastrointestinal provider at your local Adult Gastroenterology Associates location at your earliest convenience.

Identifying the cause of ileitis is an essential step your provider will take when creating an effective treatment plan. Your provider will assess your medical background and conduct an extensive physical exam. A set of tests may be ordered as well to verify the diagnosis which could include stool analysis, X-rays, barium X-rays of the small intestine, CT scan, colonoscopy, or a biopsy.

If you feel that ileitis could be the cause of your symptoms, contact an Adult Gastroenterology Associates location to consult with a GI provider who can create a specialized treatment plan for you.

Based on the results of the diagnostic exams, ileitis could be treated through medications like anti-inflammatories, antidiarrheal and/or immunosuppressant medications, and dietary supplements to aid in the reduction of inflammation and control symptoms. If symptoms cannot be controlled by medications or you are experiencing complications, surgery may be recommended. Surgery could be performed to remove any diseased area and correct perforations or blockages of the intestine. You will need to avoid smoking and incorporate regular exercise and healthy foods into your lifestyle.

Dr Blonsky and the Staff at AGA are by far the best of the best for addressing all of your Gastro needs. They are competent, confident, and compassionate. Being teamed up with Tulsa endoscopy you couldn’t be in better hands. I’ve had gastric problems for over 20 years and Dr Blonsky was my Dr for a short time and because of an insurance change I lost him as my specialist. I was not only devastated but received inadequate care elsewhere. Trust me because I have been through multiple procedures and have a very complex gastrointestinal history so I do know most all of the specialists in Tulsa and I can say with confidence all the best work at AGA. If you have experienced an issue in the past or in the future with them address it with them. Most times it’s just a miscommunication and I know they will do everything to rectify whatever the issue is.
