Can you tell me something about ischemic colitis?

A:
When blood that is supposed to flow to part of colon reduces, ischemic colitis appears. Since there is less blood flow, it cannot offer enough oxygen to the cells in the digestive system.

You may feel pain or cramp in your belly, especially on the left side. Other symptoms include bloody diarrhea and nausea.

If you experience sudden and severe pain in the belly, you should receive medical care immediately. It can trigger serious problems unless you get proper treatments timely.
