Asacol (mesalamine) affects a substance in the body that causes inflammation, tissue damage, and diarrhea. Asacol is used to treat ulcerative colitis, proctitis, and proctosigmoiditis. Asacol is also used to prevent the symptoms of ulcerative colitis from recurring.
There is no problem taking Asacol if you suffer from Type 2 Diabetes.
Asacol should be used with caution in patients with kidney problems and it is recommended that all patients have an evaluation of renal function prior to initiation of Asacol tablets and periodically while on Asacol therapy.
