Crohn’s Disease

Crohn’s disease is one of a number of conditions under the general category of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).  Crohn’s is an inflammation or series of inflammations that can occur anywhere along the gastrointestinal tract from the oral cavity to the anus.  Often there are multiple separate locations (skip lesions) affected.  The inflammation is in the lining and extends deep into the walls of the intestinal tract.

It is considered by most to be an  auto-immune disease and there are some reasons to believe it may be genetic.

Symptoms vary greatly from person to person but may include diarrhea, abdominal discomfort or pain, vomiting, weight loss.  Discomfort often comes in episodes and may be triggered by stress, insufficient fluids, inadequate nutrition, allergic reaction to certain foods, or just not eating properly (gulping a meal down, eating on the run, etc.).
