Thank you for your question,
I’m Dr. Saha and I’ll try to help you.
Colitis can be caused by several factors.
Infection is a common cause.
There can be inflammatory, autoimmune or allergic factors.
Food may act as an allergen.
Ischemia or low blood supply can cause colitis too.
Vasculitis can cause it.
The doctor can take various tests like stool analysis, blood tests, colonoscopy, biopsy to come to a diagnosis.
I hope this information helps.
