What is Crohn’s disease?

Crohn’s disease is commonly associated with inflammation in the digestive tract, abdominal pain, fatigue, severe diarrhea, and even malnutrition and weight loss. This inflammatory bowel disease can be very painful, and symptoms can often come on suddenly.

While the cause of Crohn’s disease is unknown, it is believed that the immune system and heredity may play a role in the development of the disease. Other risk factors include age, family history, ethnicity, and/or a history of smoking or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medication usage.

Treatment

Crohn’s disease can be unpredictable and can vary from patient to patient, so our recommended treatment will be tailored specifically to your condition and symptoms. Most patients find success with medication, surgery, rest, or a combination of these treatments. Depending on your specific case, our goal for treatment will be to reduce inflammation, prevent future flare-ups, and/or to prolong remission.
