Ischemic colitis

Posted by mo1216 @mo1216, Dec 6, 2016

Has anyone ever had ischemic colitis?

I am sorry your diet changes, but there are fruits and vegetables you should find are best for you….an example…apples but NOT the skins

PS. I was diagnosed with Barrets Esophagus and Diverticulosis this year. A walking encyclopedia.


What is the difference between colitis, ulcerative colitis and ischemic colitis? As you can see, I’m new to this. Just diagnosed at a Mayo hospital 3 days ago. I wonder about diet, too. The Dr. didn’t mention diet but I just read that if you have colitis you shouldn’t eat fresh fruit and veggies. Is that true?

Hello @betted,

Welcome to Connect. I’m so sorry about your diagnosis, but you’ve come to a great place to find support and information; and thank you @shirleyfoggepiazza for your reply.

There are several different types of colitis, all of which are characterized by inflammation of the large intestine (colon).
The Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) has some excellent information, which you can view here:
I would also encourage you to visit Mayo Clinic’s IBD (Inflammatory Bowel Disease) blog, where you can see videos of Mayo Clinic physicians and experts talk about the latest research, diet, treatment paths for colitis:

In the meantime, please meet @mo1216, @nkells, @opiffle, @frane1939, @sunnie, @crawdia, @malori33, @karthiekay who may be able to offer more insight about diet and ischemic colitis.

@betted, what symptoms are you experiencing? Have you already started making any dietary changes?
