Management Of Inflammatory Bowel Disease?
Good night. I want to ask, what about IBD treatment? Then, can IBD recover? How long does the recovery take? thanks.
Thank you for using the HealthReplies.com service.
IBD is an abbreviation of Inflammatory Bowel Disease, which is a general term for two types of diseases, namely ulcerative colitis, and Crohn's disease. Both are inflammation of the intestinal wall, which can cause symptoms such as diarrhea, abdominal pain, decreased appetite, bowel movements with blood, and others.
Management of IBD is very individual, because it depends on several factors, such as the severity of the disease, the location of inflammation, the response of previous treatment, and the presence of other diseases that accompany it. There are several strategies in the treatment of IBD, namely:
Corticosteroid medications Immunomodulatory drugs Antibiotics Biologic therapy Surgical measures The choice of treatment is very dependent on the patient's condition and the doctor's consideration of the benefits and side effects of each action. Therefore, always consult a specialist in internal medicine who handles you about the strategies that are suitable for you.
Although until now the disease has not been cured medically, but if handled properly and with medication adherence, patients with IBD can have a good quality of life, and can live like normal people. In addition, research is currently being developed to better handle IBD.
