Crohn’s Disease

Crohn's disease is a type of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) that causes inflammation in the various parts of the gastrointestinal tract. The inflammation can affect the bowel tissue, which can lead to life-threatening complications.

Symptoms include:

  • Abdominal pain
  • Severe Diarrhea
  • Fatigue
  • Weight loss
  • Malnutrition
  • Blood in stool
  • Mouth sores
  • Pain or drainage around anus

There is no known cure for Crohn's disease, but therapies can help manage symptoms and put disease in long-term remission. Many patients are able to function well when being managed on therapies.
