Crohn’s disease

Crohn’s disease is a lifelong condition that affects the digestive system, causing inflammation and damage to the bowels. It can have a big impact on a person’s quality of life. Crohn’s disease can be diagnosed at any age, from children to seniors, but it is most commonly diagnosed in people in their 20s.

The exact cause of Crohn’s disease is still unknown, and there is no cure. However, there are treatments available to manage the symptoms. A doctor who specializes in the digestive system, called a gastroenterologist, will monitor the patient and adjust the treatment as needed.

Symptoms of Crohn’s disease can include anemia, fatigue, diarrhea, fever, abdominal pain, cramping, rash, blood in stool, mouth sores, reduced appetite, kidney stones, eye inflammation, and weight loss. Some people with Crohn’s disease may also experience pain or discharge near the anus, which can be caused by a type of complication called a fistula.
