CROHN’S DISEASE TREATMENTS
THE BEST TREATMENT FOR INFLAMMATORY BOWEL DISEASE
There is no complete cure for the inflammation, but a choice of appropriate medical treatment keeps the disease in remission.Surgical removal of the colon (colectomy) is said to be a potential cure, but this should be a last resort, and still, it might cause surgical complications in some patients. Treatment by medication or another way will differ slightly depending on the extent of infection and goals a physician intends to achieve.
Drug treatment intends to reduce the inflammation in the gut to relieve the symptoms, treat active flare of an IBD and induce remission to comfort the patient. The approach is what some call induction therapy.
Keep you well therapy
A doctor will determine when the condition is under control and continue to prescribe medicine to maintain remission and prevent recurrence of active disease. This is the maintenance therapy phase. These are long-term treatments to take even when there are no symptoms, and everything is well. Maintenance medications might differ from the induction therapies although some of them can be long-term for the patient to take them as maintenance treatment. The intention of the therapies keeps someone weld hence their name.
TYPES OF INFLAMMATORY BOWEL DISEASE MEDICINE
A doctor prescribes medicine that will reduce inflammation that triggers the signs and symptoms. The drugs in the best cases lead to symptom relief, long-term remission and reduce the risk of complications.
The first Step to treat IBD is to by administering anti-inflammatory drugs depending on the affected area of the colon. These drugs include aminosalicylates and corticosteroids.
Immune system suppressor
These are drugs that function in various ways to suppress an immune response causing the release of chemicals that induce inflammation in the intestinal lining. Some people need a combination of drugs because one is not enough to suppress the release of inflammation-causing chemicals. Azathioprine, methotrexate, and cyclosporine are some of the immunosuppressant drugs.
