Ulcerative Colitis - Symptom, Treatment And Causes

What is Ulcerative colitis?

Ulcerative colitis is an IBD (Inflammatory Bowel Disease). Inflammatory Bowel Disease comprises of a group of illnesses that affects the GI (Gastro-Intestinal) tract. Ulcerative colitis happens when the lining in the colon or bowel (large intestine) and the rectum gets inflamed.This inflammation on the GI tract, produces tiny sores known as ulcers on the whole lining of the colon. These ulcers generally develop in the rectum and then spreads upward. Ulcerative colitis rarely affects the small intestine.

This inflammation on the GI tract, causes the bowel to move its contents rapidly and empty frequently. Due to this disease as the cells on the surface of the bowel lining dies, it causes ulcers. These ulcers also often cause bleeding and discharge mucus and pus.Ulcerative colitis can affect people of all ages. However, it’s more common in people who are between 15 and 30 or between 50 and 70.

Causes :

The cause of ulcerative colitis is unknown. In the past, though researchers were of the opinion that stress is one of the major causes of this disease, but of late researchers focuses on the heredity factors and immune system as a possible cause for this disease.It’s believed that you’re at a risk of getting affected by this disease if someone in your close family members also has his condition.This disease can develop in anyone of any race, but it has found that ulcerative colitis is more common in Ashkenazi Jews and Caucasians.

Symptoms :

People suffering from this disease have increased risks of developing colon cancer. So most of the time doctor’s perform a colonoscopy on the patients affected with this disease, to check for cancer, if you are diagnosed with this disease. This screening lowers the risk of colon cancer, since it can detect the precancerous cells early and help in prognosis of the disease. Some of the complications found among the patients suffering from ulcerative colitis are sepsis, severe dehydration, thickening of the intestinal wall, swelling of the colon, hepatic disease, intestinal bleeding, inflammations of the joints and eyes, formation of kidney stones, ankylosing spondylitis and development of a hole in the colon.

Treatable by medical professional Require medical diagnosis Lab test required Chronic: can last for years or be lifelong
Symptoms
Increased abdominal sounds. Acute abdominal pain. Blood in stool. Fever along with diarrhea. Rectal pain. Malnutrition and sudden weight loss.

Ulcerative Colitis Surgery - Tips For Quick Recovery!

Most patients suffering from ulcerative colitis are advised to undergo a surgery as that is oftentimes, the last option remaining for them. Failure of other treatments to bear any results leads to the need for a surgery. There are two main categories of surgery options; however, the difference lies in where the waste pouch will be placed following the ulcerative colitis surgery.

A patient who is planning to go through the ulcerative colitis surgery procedure must be aware of the recovery period and its duration. Since the surgery is an invasive and an intensive procedure, the recovery time is lengthy. So, naturally, before you arrive at any decision it is recommended that you consult your doctor, surgeon and other healthcare professionals about the procedure.

Ulcerative colitis is not a curable disease, but if your colon and rectum are removed, the symptoms of ulcerative colitis can be treated. But educate yourself as you may still have to live with a number of side effects of the surgeries, even after the incisions have healed. This is the reason that you must prepare yourself both physically and mentally before making any decision, which should be based on the information available.

Tips for Quick Recovery
The recovery from ulcerative colitis is quite tricky. As it is an invasive surgical procedure, the recovery time is lengthy. However, you should not fret yourself with that. With the required care and doctor’s advice, you will be able to return to your daily life in full vigor. In order to improve your recovery and hasten the process, you will be given a detailed file of information that you must follow strictly. These tips are:

  • After the surgery, you may have to remain in the hospital for 3 to 7 days. This is a mandatory protocol as it allows your surgeon to monitor your incisions and treat any complication or infections.
  • Any procedure that you may opt for, a total of 4 to 6 weeks is a minimum requirement for recovery.
  • During this time, you will be asked to meet your surgeon regularly and in some cases an enterostomal therapist as well. An enterostomal therapist is a specialized doctor who only deals with patients who have had their colon removed. So you should make an appointment with an enterostomal therapist, suggested by your doctor, and have him/her review your case.
  • Eat nutritional healthy foods to avoid any complications.
  • Stay hydrated by drinking at least 2-3 liters of water per day.
  • A rehab therapist or a physical therapist will help you to move towards your normal life, by keeping you active and recommending rejuvenating exercises that won’t hamper your health.
  • Manage stress and anxiety as they cause stomach issues.

Ulcerative Surgery - What Should You Know?

Ulcerative Surgery - What Should You Know?

What Is Ulcerative Colitis?
Ulcerative colitis is a chronic, inflammatory condition of the colon and the rectum. It affects the mucosal lining of the large intestine (colon) and the rectum. The rectum is present just above the anus.
In this condition, patients have ulcers and abscesses in their colon and rectum.

Symptoms are seen periodically. The symptoms are severe pain in the abdomen, blood in stools and diarrhea. Anemia is seen due to decreased healthy red blood cells as a consequence of bleeding in stools.

When is surgery required?

  • The colon has ruptured
  • There is extensive bleeding
  • The treatment results in severe side effects affecting the patient's health
  • Drug therapy fails to provide results
  • When it progresses to colon cancer
  • Surgery for Ulcerative colitis

There are 2 types of surgeries:

  1. Colectomy: Surgery performed to remove the entire colon
  2. Proctocolectomy: Surgery is conducted to remove both the colon and rectum. It is considered as the standard treatment for ulcerative colitis.

Procedures for the surgery

  1. Ileostomy: The entire colon and rectum are removed and the surgeon creates an opening or stoma in the abdominal wall particularly below the waist. Stoma allows waste from the intestines to exit the body. The tip of the lower small intestine is brought through the stoma. An external bag, or pouch, is attached to the stoma. This is called a permanent ileostomy. Stools pass through this opening and collect in the pouch. The pouch must be worn at all times. Before an ileostomy, the surgeon will perform a proctocolectomy. They will perform the ileostomy in the hospital, and the patient receives a general anesthesia.
  2. Ileal Pouch Anal Anastomosis (IPAA): This is also called a J-pouch. This is a procedure that does not require a permanent stoma. The patient is still able to eliminate stool through the anus. A pouch is constructed at the end of the ileum and attached to the anus. This is called a J- pouch. As with the ileostomy, the patient will need a proctocolectomy before an IPAA. An IPAA is done in a hospital, and the patient will receive a general anesthesia.

Side-effects
Some people experience incontinence after the surgery. Medications may help control the function of the pouch.
Some women may become infertile after the procedure.

Recovery after Surgery
Both sets of the procedure will require a four-to-six-week recovery period.

  1. Keep your diet healthy: A healthy diet is essential because good nutrition can help the body heal faster and help avoid post-operation health issues. Absorption of nutrients can be an issue after these surgeries, so eating well will help in maintaining the proper level of nutrients.
  2. Keep yourself hydrated: Hydration is important for overall health, especially for the digestive health. Drinking six to eight glasses of water per day is recommended.
  3. Manage your stress: Anxiety or emotional stress can cause stomach issues, which can aggravate the complaint.

Ulcerative Colitis - How Surgery Can Help Manage It?

Ulcerative Colitis is one of the severe and chronic forms of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) that can throw life in a jeopardy. The condition that mainly affects the rectum and the large intestine can cause severe inflammation, ulceration, and abscess formation. The ulceration or the inflammation of the colon and the rectum left unattended for too long can give rise to deleterious consequences including damage and perforation of the colon, osteoporosis. Various studies also suggest that ulcerative colitis can increase the risk of a person suffering colon cancer.

Like most of the IBD, there is no definite cure for ulcerative colitis. The illness is a chronic condition and can flare up or recur at any point in time. Though medications may help to control the damage and the complications triggered by ulcerative colitis, a surgery may be essential in case of

  • Severe damage to the colon.
  • The nonsurgical treatments could do little to improve the conditions.
  • There is an increased risk of colon cancer.
  • Ulcerative colitis has resulted in Toxic megacolon (a life-threatening condition where the large intestinal muscles have dilated with some swelling).
  • There are extreme discomfort and bleeding.

Surgeries to deal with Ulcerative Colitis

  • In the case of Ulcerative Colitis, the nature of the surgery depends on the extent to which the colon or the rectum or both have been affected and damaged.
  • In the case of extensive damage with a high risk of colon cancer, the surgeon may perform Proctocolectomy or colectomy
  • Colectomy may involve
    • Removal of all of the colon- Total Colectomy
    • Removal of the diseased part of the colon- Partial Colectomy.
  • Following the excision, the surgeon may carry out necessary rearrangements to reconnect the remaining portion of the colon to the abdomen through an opening known as stroma (the procedure is known as colostomy).
  • In case of Total Colectomy, the small intestine will be connected to the abdomen by a process known as Ileostomy.
  • Proctocolectomy involves the removal of both the rectum and colon to avoid further aggravation.
  • Following the proctocolectomy, the surgeon may carry out Ileoanal Anastomosis (Ileal Pouch-Anal Anastomosis). In this procedure, a pouch is created using a small part of the small intestine. This pouch is then connected to the anus to help in the elimination of the wastes.

General precautionary measures to control Ulcerative Colitis
Making healthy lifestyle and dietary modifications can go a long way to control ulcerative colitis and the associated symptoms.

  • Spicy foods can worsen the incidence of ulcerative colitis. Enrich your diet with lots of fruits, vegetables (squash, avocados, fish (especially salmon and tuna), meat, dairy products, olive oil, walnuts, flaxseed oil, almonds.
  • Make sure the diet is a low-fiber diet.
  • Avoid alcoholic and caffeinated drinks and beverages, foods high in sulfur content, refined sugar.
  • Research suggests stress and lack of physical activities can aggravate the ulcerative colitis. Mediation and daily exercise can produce fruitful results.
  • Make sure your sleep is not compromised (6-8 hours daily).

Ulcerative Colitis Diet - Foods To Eat And Avoid!

Eating good and healthy food always contributes to the overall wellbeing of a person. Same holds true for the patients suffering from ulcerative colitis (UC). Ulcerative colitis patients need certain dietary modification to bring about a change in their condition. Though this condition isn’t directly caused by the food but the frequency of flare ups is influenced by the food taken. Below mentioned is the list of foods to eat and avoid.

Food to be Consumed
Usually, for ulcerative colitis, low fibre and low residue foods are considered the best since they are easy to digest. Here is a list of foods that can be included in the diet:

  1. Vitamin D: This vitamin boosts the immune system to fight the risks of ulcerative colitis flare ups. Since the sun is the best source of Vitamin D, it is important that a person gets as much exposure to the sun as possible.
  2. Probiotics: Maintain a balance between good and bad bacteria of the gut which in turn alleviates the symptoms of this condition.
  3. Omega-3 fatty acids: Omega-3 fatty acids have an anti-inflammatory effect, which can help alleviate intestinal inflammation caused by ulcerative colitis. Salmon is one of the best sources of Omega-3.
  4. Eggs: Eggs are typically easy to digest and offer a number of nutrients which makes them one of the best choices for the patients of UC.
  5. Plenty of fluid: People with this condition need to drink extra fluid, as diarrhoea can lead to dehydration.
  6. Supplements: Dietary supplements also help in balancing the nutritional needs of a patient.

And last but not the least there are many anti-inflammatory foods that help in reducing the ulcerative colitis flare-ups include turmeric, cloves, ginger and rosemary.

Foods to be Avoided
A patient should closely monitor what s/he is eating as the studies have revealed that the symptoms of ulcerative colitis are closely associated with diet. The following list will help you cut off the chances of UC flare ups.

  1. High Fibre Food: Are difficult to digest so should be cut off from the diet. It’s best to moderate the intake of fruits and vegetables with insoluble fibres.
  2. Oily and Fatty Foods: The greasy food can aggravate the symptoms of UC as well as can cause diarrhoea.
  3. Spicy foods: Spicy foods may disturb your bowel movements, so it is best to limit the intake of chillies, chilli powder, paprika, peppers etc.
  4. Dairy products: Patients of UC are mostly lactose intolerant. So, these patients should avoid dairy products.
  5. Seeds and nuts: Seeds and nuts are hard to digest, and it is best to avoid them if you are suffering from ulcerative colitis.

Ulcerative Colitis is just a disease which can be avoided by maintaining a proper diet and making few dietary modifications. One should eat smaller meals a few times per days instead of eating large ones.

Ways To Deal With Ulcerative Colitis!

Living with ulcerative colitis can be very challenging. Patients of this disease will have to deal with pain in the abdomen and several digestion related issues in their daily lives. It is known to adversely impact the digestive tract. There can be extreme discomfort at the time of flare-ups. A patient can find life extremely difficult while dealing with symptoms like abdominal pain, fever, weight loss, and chronic diarrhea.

What is Ulcerative colitis (UC)?
It is a serious inflammatory disease. It is caused due to inflammatory bowel movements in the digestive tract. It can affect your daily life adversely. The worst part about this disease is that it relapses in the individual. It is characterized by flare-ups. You need to know fist what is an UC flare-up. Well, it is a term to refer to an exaggerated condition in the disease. It refers to a state when things turn worse. These flare-ups can be caused due to a number of factors. Some of these include:

  1. Side-effect of certain medicines
  2. Hormonal imbalance, especially during pregnancy
  3. Sudden withdrawal from medication
  4. Any infection or other medical condition

How to deal with the UC flare-ups?

  1. Doctors often prescribe corticosteroids to deal with the flare-ups. Some of the most common drugs are Prednisone and budesonide.
  2. Doctors prescribe the intake of steroids, 5-Aminosalicylates, antibiotics, and biologics.
  3. Lifestyle changes are helpful in treating this disease. You can work towards detoxification and de-stressing yourself to get rid of the flare-ups. Take up some exercises, meditation and Yoga for best results.
  4. You can also control chronic diarrhea by keeping a check on what you eat. You should avoid eating fibrous diet. Fibres are tough to digest for patients with UC. You must maintain proper hygiene as well to stay away from diarrhea.

Surgical Management of Ulcerative Colitis

Ulcerative colitis (UC) is an inflammatory disease of the colon and rectum limited to the mucosa, and may vary in severity from a mild intermittent disease to an acute fulminant and potentially fatal disease requiring urgent surgery. Management of ulcerative colitis depends on severity, extent, and duration of the disease, response and tolerance to medication, patient age and comorbidity as well as patient preference.

Surgery plays an important role in the management of UC both because of the premalignant nature of the disease, and because of the periodic failure of medical management. The underlying rationale for surgical treatment of the disease is that the disease is confined to the colon and rectum, and therefore proctocolectomy is curative. The goal of surgical therapy for ulcerative colitis is to remove the disease with as little alteration of normal physiological functions and lifestyle as possible.

Four surgical options exist for patients with ulcerative colitis and each has its own advantages and disadvantages.

The surgical choices are:

  1. Proctocolectomy and Brooke ileostomy.
  2. Abdominal colectomy and ilcorectal anastomosis.
  3. Proctocolectomy and Kock pouch.
  4. Restorative proctocolectomy with ileal pouch-anal anastomosis (IPAA).

The choice of operation requires consideration of the advantages and disadvantages of each option and must be tailored to an individual patient's needs and circumstances. Important factors to be considered in the choice of operation include the indication for surgery, age, associated medical conditions, body habitues, and quality of the anal sphincter. Extensive preoperative education is required which should include discussion with a specialized Gastroenterologist

Diabetic Foot Ulcer
Diabetic foot ulcer is a major complication of diabetes and is one of the major component of diabetic foot. It is caused by neuropathic (nerve) and vascular (blood vessel) Hello friends!

I am Dr. Anubhav Gupta. I am a consultant plastic surgeon at Sir Ganga Ram Hospital. Today I am going to talk with you about a very neglected problem faced by a lot of patient of ours and that is the diabetic foot. Now what happens usually is people who have diabetes are always prone to have some problem in their feet. It is because of microangiopathy and because of the high level of glucose which is constantly there so there is a culture medium in the blood which can cause a lot of injuries. So it is very important for them to take very good care of their feet.

I always recommend my patients from diabetes that they should look at their feet just like they look at their face everyday in the morning. So every day you have to see even if there is a small issue then you should not neglect it. You should approach a plastic surgeon or an aesthetic surgeon or any other surgeon who is taking care of the feet. Usually, these kinds of the patient require a multimodality approach. A plastic surgeon, a vascular surgeon and sometimes a paediatrics.

So it's a combined therapy. Multiple sessions are required but what is more important is to attack the problem at the very beginning, because if we don't attack the problem in the very beginning it can lead to catastrophic consequences. It may start with a small blackening of the toe and it can actually extend up to right above the knee also. So when we treat these patients aggressively and at an early stage we usually limit the damage caused by the diabetic neuropathy and as well as other infective focus. The point or the take the home message over here is that we should treat these patients aggressively and early and the patient should be made aware that these kinds of problem are not to be taken lightly. For more details, you can contact me on lybrate.

Thank you!omplications of diabetes.

Homeopathy is specially effective for more of chronic and recurring diseases. Of course homeopathy has great scope in the treatment of acute disease as well however homeopathy possibly is not so great for critical diseases such as microbial infection, heart attack or accidents etc. So coming back to the treatment of chronic and recurring diseases which is a huge segment in fact.

These are the diseases which tends to remain for weeks or months or years together. They are resistant to conventional treatment or any other form of treatment then homeopathy has to be thought of. Some of these diseases in this category are for example various forms of allergies, skin allergies, respiratory allergies, allergic dermatitis etc. They respond extremely well to homeopathy. The condition such as bronchial asthma, recurrent colds, recurring infections etc. they also respond extremely to homeopathy. A range of conditions called autoimmune diseases which could affect various parts of the body such as gastrointestinal tract, stomach, intestine where you have gastritis, ulcerative colitis, affecting the joints where you have rheumatoid arthritis including Spondylitis and so on and so forth.
