Crohn’s Disease is characterised by chronic inflammation, particularly in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. This disease can result in severe fatigue, weight loss, abdominal pain, diarrhea and even malnutrition.
Crohn’s Disease is different to other forms of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) like ulcerative colitis because it affects the GI tract. The disease affects as many as 700,000 Westerners, young adults, and children aged 18-3 can be the most susceptible. However, both men and women are equally likely to be affected.
Doctors also believe that other factors have to be taken into account. This includes factors such as genetics – making the condition hereditary in most cases. It can also cause malfunctioning of the immune system and this can play a role in the development of the disease.
Common Signs and Symptoms
- Diarrhea, along with intense intestinal cramping
- Low-grade fever due to inflammation or infection along with low levels of energy can have a major impact
- Abdominal pain and cramping
- The development of mouth ulcers
- Blood mixed with stools or spotting within the toilet bowl due to fecal-occult bleeding. Inflammation in the anus can also cause pain or drainage from the tunnel.
