Ulcerative Colitis vs. Crohn’s Disease
Ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease are two types of inflammatory bowel disease that affect the digestive tract. While they share similarities, they also have distinct differences. Ulcerative colitis primarily affects the colon and rectum, causing chronic inflammation and ulcers in the large intestine. On the other hand, Crohn’s disease can affect any part of the digestive tract, from the mouth to the rectum, and it involves inflammation that can penetrate deep into the intestinal walls.
How Is Infusion Therapy Used to Treat Ulcerative Colitis?
Infusion therapy plays a vital role in the treatment of ulcerative colitis. Our infusion center offers physician-supervised infusion treatments of REMICADE ® (infliximab), CIMZIA ® (certolizumab), STELARA ® (ustekinumab), or ENTYVIO ® (vedolizumab) that target the immune system to reduce inflammation in the large intestine. These infusions are administered through an intravenous (IV) line, and our highly skilled healthcare providers ensure that you receive the most effective and safe infusion treatments.
How IV Therapy Works for Crohn’s Disease
For individuals with Crohn’s disease, infusion therapy is an effective option to manage the condition. Through IV infusion, we deliver medications directly into the bloodstream to suppress the overactive immune response responsible for inflammation in the digestive tract. Our infusion treatments are designed to alleviate symptoms, reduce flare-ups, and maintain remission in Crohn’s disease patients.
Side Effects of Infusion Therapy for Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn’s Disease
As with any treatment, there are potential side effects associated with infusion therapy. Common side effects may include fatigue, headache, nausea, injection site reactions, and the possibility of allergic reactions. Our healthcare providers closely monitor each infusion session to ensure your safety and promptly address any side effects that may arise. Your well-being is our top priority throughout the treatment process.
What to Expect During Infusion Therapy
During your infusion therapy at IDYLLIC, you can expect a comfortable and supportive environment. The infusion process typically takes several hours, giving you time to relax in our soothing infusion center. Our healthcare providers will guide you through the treatment, and you’ll receive personalized care and attention from our experienced team.
Understanding the Medications Used
Infusion therapy involves the use of biologic medications, which are designed to target specific proteins and components of the immune system involved in inflammatory bowel diseases. Some common medications used in infusion therapy for ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease include REMICADE ® (infliximab), CIMZIA ® (certolizumab), STELARA ® (ustekinumab), and ENTYVIO ® (vedolizumab). Your gastroenterology doctor will determine the most suitable medication and treatment plan for your specific condition.
Managing Risks and Potential Side Effects
While infusion therapy can be highly effective, it’s important to be aware of the potential risks and side effects. Infections and serious allergic reactions are possible but rare. Our healthcare providers closely monitor your treatment and ensure that you receive the necessary precautions and follow-up care to minimize these risks.
