Ileitis is a GI condition characterized by discomfort or swelling in the ileum, which is the part of the small intestine that meets the colon. Common effects of ileitis could include any of the following:

  • Unplanned loss of weight
  • Cramping or pain in one's abdomen, as well as fistulas (unusual openings that grow from one part to another of the intestine)
  • Diarrhea

Ileitis can be caused by many diseases, Crohn’s disease being the most common. Other instigating factors can be infections, effects of ischemia, NSAIDs, and atypical growths. If you are seeking care for ileitis in Lubbock, TX, assistance not far away. Receive the treatment you need by consulting with a gastroenterology specialist at your closest Lubbock Digestive Disease Associates location at your earliest convenience.

Diagnosing the primary cause of ileitis is vital to efficiently manage this GI condition and to the treatment plan chosen by your specialist. Your Lubbock Digestive Disease Associates provider will review your medical history and carry out a complete physical exam. A comprehensive set of assessments might also be ordered to confirm the diagnosis and may include a stool analysis, X-rays, barium X-rays of the small intestine, CT scan, colonoscopy, and biopsy.


Based on the findings of the diagnostic tests, ileitis could be treated and managed using medications like antibiotics, corticosteroids, antidiarrheal and immune-suppressing medications, as well as dietary supplements to decrease the swelling and control related symptoms. Surgery will be considered if symptoms cannot be managed by medications or if complications arise. A surgical procedure can be conducted to remove a diseased part, and/or fix blockages, intestinal bleeding, and perforations in the intestine. You will need to follow healthy habits, exercise regularly, keep a healthy diet, and quit or avoid smoking.
