Thanks for writing to us.

Colonic ulcers or inflammations are best diagnosed by colonoscopy. Capsule endoscopy is the best way to diagnose. Sometimes taking a biopsy is necessary to know the type of lesion. Dietary modifications will only help in the short term relief. You need to follow the advise of your gastroenterologist in this regard.

I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.

Colonoscopy is beneficial for you and you should undergo that. But should also enquire with your gastroenterologist regarding the cause of this ulcer. Is it Crohn's disease, have you heard of it?
