Crohn's disease causes inflammation of the digestive system, also referred to as the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. It is one of a group of diseases called inflammatory bowel disease. Crohn's disease seems to run in some families and can occur in all age groups. Crohn’s disease affects men and women equally. It is estimated that about 5 out of every 100,000 people in the United States have Crohn’s disease.

This disease often causes problems in the lower part of the small intestine or in the large intestine. This can result in abdominal pain and diarrhea. Other symptoms such as bleeding from the rectum, weight loss, joint pain, skin problems and fever may occur. Left untreated, Crohn’s disease may lead to intestinal blockage, ulcers and malnutrition. In some children, untreated Crohn’s disease may cause developmental delay.

The goal of treatment is to provide symptom relief and long-term remission by reducing inflammation. Treatment may include medicines, nutrition supplements, surgery or a combination of these options. It is very important to follow your doctor’s instructions and take your medication as prescribed.
