Crohn's disease is one of the most common types of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). It causes inflammation of the digestive tract that leads to abdominal pain, severe diarrhea, fatigue, weight loss and malnutrition. Inflammation in this condition can involve different part of the digestive tract in different people which often spreads into the deeper layers of the bowel. It is a chronic inflammatory bowel disease can be painful, debilitating, and sometimes it may also lead to life-threatening complications. Unfortunately, there is no cure for Crohn's disease yet, therapies are available to reduce the symptoms and even bring about long-term remission as well as healing of inflammation. Steroids and immunosuppressants help to slow the progression of the disease and if these aren't effective, patients are suggested to undergo surgery. Patients with Crohn's disease must have regular screening for colorectal cancer due to increased risk. Crohn's disease mostly causes abdominal pain, diarrhoea, weight loss, anaemia and fatigue.
