Characterized by the chronic inflammation of all or part of the digestive tract, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) affects 1.6 million Americans. Two of the most common conditions linked to IBD are ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease.
If you or a loved one suffers from IBD, you likely know the symptoms:
- Severe diarrhea
- Weight loss
You also may know about the frequent trips to the hospital, and the challenge to find a balance between taking care of your health and maintaining “normal” work and social routines. Fortunately, there are ways to better manage IBD; starting with how and where you receive your treatment.
Treating chronic inflammatory bowel disease with infusion services
How effective is infusion therapy (delivers medication intravenously or via other non-oral methods) at treating IBD? Research presented at the inaugural Crohn’s & Colitis Congress™ showed that infusion services are integral to improving the quality of IBD care.
In addition to helping many patients avoid time-consuming trips to hospitals or to costly emergency rooms, the report pointed out the value of same-day appointments to those needing to be seen for IBD flare-ups.
These are just a few of the advantages of infusion services at Astera Cancer Care. We offer infusion therapy for Chronic Inflammatory Bowel Treatment in Somerville, Somerset, Edison, East Brunswick, Monroe Township.
