Crohn's Disease

Crohns Disease

Crohn's disease is a chronic inflammatory bowel disorder causing inflammation anywhere in the digestive tract, often affecting the small intestine and colon. Symptoms include abdominal pain, diarrhea, rectal bleeding, weight loss, fatigue, and fever. Its exact cause is unclear but likely involves genetic predisposition, immune system dysfunction, and environmental factors. Crohn's is characterized by periods of active symptoms interspersed with periods of remission. Complications may include strictures, fistulas, malnutrition, and increased risk of colon cancer. Treatment aims to reduce inflammation, alleviate symptoms, and prevent complications through medications, lifestyle modifications, dietary changes, and sometimes surgery to remove affected sections of the bowel.
