Lower Gastrointestinal (GI) Bleeding

Is there a cure for lower GI bleeding?

A Answers (1)

  • Lower gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding can be treated and controlled, but there is no cure for the bleeding itself. Since it is a sign of another illness or condition, usually affecting the GI tract, lower GI bleeding must be treated each time it transpires. It is possible, however, to cure some of the conditions that may be causing the bleeding. For example, an ulcer may be surgically corrected, or bleeding polyps may be removed.
