Identifying intestinal inflammation and treating it correctly
People often misinterpret their symptoms, ignore them or try to treat them themselves. But this is not always the right way. Because with the wrong medication or without treatment, the symptoms only become stronger, the inflammation spreads to other areas of the stomach or intestine and becomes chronic.
Many forms of intestinal inflammation are easily treatable if a correct diagnosis has been made previously. Depending on the severity and type of inflammation, different treatment options may be considered. In severe inflammations, antibiotic therapy is often the right choice. In the case of chronic intestinal inflammations, however, the symptoms occur in episodes. Therefore, Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis are treated with medication that weakens the episodes. It is not possible to cure both intestinal diseases. The aim is to inhibit the inflammations, to keep the pain as low as possible and to prevent cramps and diarrhoea.
