Anatomic Pathology Examination Results For Patients With Gastrointestinal Inflammation?
Thank you for the question.
Ulcerative colitis is a form of inflammation in the lower gastrointestinal tract, or more precisely in the large intestine (colon) to the end of the intestine which is connected to the anus. Symptoms of ulcerative colitis can include continuous diarrhea accompanied by blood or pus in the stool.
Ulcerative colitis is usually characterized by changes in the structure of the large intestine, such as sores or ulcers on the surface of the intestine, the presence of intestinal polyps, and disorders of the intestinal crypts. Intestinal kripta is a gland that is in the folds of the intestine whose cells are useful to improve the surface of the intestine and produce mucus or intestinal lining fluid. In ulcerative colitis, these kripta can be damaged or damaged, causing the surface of the large intestine to become damaged or formed sores.
Here are recommendations that you can take when you suffer from ulcerative colitis:
Change your diet, avoid milk and dairy products, spicy foods, high in fiber, alcoholic drinks and caffeine. Drink 2-3L of water every day. Manage stress, because ulcerative colitis can be made worse by stress. Routinely consume drugs that have been prescribed by doctors, such as anti-inflammatory drugs, immunosuppressants, pain relievers that are safe for the intestines such as paracetamol, antidiarrheal, and antibiotics. Bowel cancer screening checks every 1-2 years because ulcerative colitis has a higher risk for colon cancer. If with the above recommendations there is no improvement, the last step (but rarely) is to do surgery, which must be consulted first to the doctor. Hope this helps.
