Ischemic Colitis

Posted by Malori33 @malori33, Oct 6, 2011

Hi Folks – Has anybody else heard of this? Are you familiar with it? It is not easy to find alot on this outside of the basics. I’ve been diagnosed with it (I’m 52) but they can’t figure out WHY I have it. I’d so love to hear from others. I have an appointment in November – flying in from Charlotte, NC.

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Digestive Health group.

Look at frankinscents aswaganda, tumeric, Vitamin K1, copper, bioflavnoids, garlic & exercise get the blood flowing B1, Biotin & alpha-lipoic acid. Go to The Gut Solution by Brenda Watson or Prescription Health by Dr Balsh. Do computer search on nutritin & your problem.


It’s a condition where part of the large intestine swells due to shortage of blood supply to that portion of the colon and occurs mostly in persons over the age of 50.May be due to vascular diseases which is basically the veins and arterioles of the extremities.Constipation or drugs that cause constipation,diabetes,high blood pressure,rheumatoid arthritis,congestive heart failure,blockage of the large intestine..among others.These are all related to the the mean time you can relieve it by taking liquid diet.Fluids via the veins wouldn’t be an at home trial or antibiotics but pain killers to relieve the discomfort is nit such a bad idea.They will treat you well but if its severe you may have the chance of going into surgery for that portion to be removed or you’d be put on an antibiotic treatment which normall does not take so long.They however will test a lot of things first(such as the extent of the condition) to settle on the best worries however,stay safe..hope all goes well.


Hi Malori, I left you a message on the “share” button, maybe this is more personal. Please contact me and let me know how your appointment turned out. I have been thinking about going to the Mayo Clinic to see if I can get any relief from this Ischemic Colitis. It is miserable. Claudia
