Crohn’s disease is a chronic inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) that can affect any part of the digestive tract, from the mouth to the anus. It is a lifelong condition that can cause a variety of symptoms and complications. Here is some information for patients about Crohn’s disease:
Symptoms: The symptoms of Crohn’s disease can vary from person to person, and may include abdominal pain, diarrhea, weight loss, fatigue, and rectal bleeding. Some people with Crohn’s disease may also experience joint pain, skin rashes, and eye redness or pain.
Causes: The exact cause of Crohn’s disease is unknown, but it is thought to be a combination of genetic, environmental, and immune factors.
Diagnosis: To diagnose Crohn’s disease, a healthcare provider will typically perform a physical examination, review your medical history, and order tests such as blood work, a stool sample, and imaging tests. A colonoscopy or upper endoscopy may also be necessary to visualize the inside of the digestive tract.

Treatment: There is no cure for Crohn’s disease, but treatment can help reduce symptoms and prevent complications. Treatment options may include medications, such as anti-inflammatory drugs and immune system suppressors, and in severe cases, surgery to remove the affected part of the digestive tract.
Managing Crohn’s disease: In addition to medical treatment, there are steps you can take to manage Crohn’s disease and improve your quality of life. These may include eating a healthy diet, getting regular exercise, and finding ways to reduce stress. It is also important to work closely with a healthcare provider to manage your condition and prevent complications.
If you have been diagnosed with Crohn’s disease, it is important to follow your treatment plan and work with your healthcare team to manage your condition and improve your quality of life.
