More Answers to “Need some help have a friend very sick with Colitis. Can anyone give advice on who to see in Ireland any info?“I have crohn’s and im 19. I had an Operation last year and its the best thing ever. I now feel beter than ever, although it may not be the best option for everybody, it depends on age and other things. With colitis surgery they have to remove the whole of the large bowl i think, and that treats it i think (im not 100%). Some medication might help like pentasa. My advice is to go to your GP and he/her should referer you to a specialist. Also try joining NACC, they can send you good leaflets www.nacc.org.uk/. Don’t believe everything on the internet, there is a lot of crap out there. All the best and I hope you’r friend gets a lot better. gastro enterologist!
If a mild attack any GP can prescribe drugs that will help. However,if it is severe colitis it could be very serious (i.e.Crohns Disease) I would suggest that he gets referred to a specialist – Consultant gastro-enterorologist. He may need surgery if the colon is very damaged. Send your friend some glyconutrients. It will be appreciated.info is on my page.
