awww… that’s very nice of you to ask!
in my research , I have found that a LOT of site are poorly informed or downright wrong. ( Which is shocking! ) The most accurate one being Wikipedia… ( which is….surprising and not in a good way. )
Here’s bits and pieces of the most accurate facts I could find because there isn’t one that covered all the bases!
Crohn’s disease, also known as Crohn syndrome and regional enteritis, is a type of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) that may affect any part of the gastrointestinal tract from mouth to anus.Crohn’s disease is caused by a combination of environmental, immune and bacterial factors in genetically susceptible individuals. It results in a chronic inflammatory disorder, in which the body’s immune system attacks the gastrointestinal tract possibly directed at microbial antigens.While Crohn’s is an immune related disease, it does not appear to be an autoimmune disease (in that the immune system is not being triggered by the body itself). The exact underlying immune problem is not clear; however, it may be an immunodeficiency state. About half of the overall risk is related to genetics with more than 70 genes found to be involved.There are no medications or surgical procedures that can cure Crohn’s disease. Treatment options help with symptoms, maintain remission, and prevent relapse. One in five people with the disease are admitted to hospital each year, and half of those with the disease will require surgery for the disease at some point over a ten year period. While surgery should be used as little as possible, it is necessary to address some abscesses, certain bowel obstructions, and cancers.
Symptoms: Crohn’s disease can affect any part of the GI tract. While symptoms vary from patient to patient and some may be more common than others, the tell-tale symptoms of Crohn’s disease include:
- -Symptoms related to inflammation of the GI tract:
- -Persistent Diarrhea
- -Rectal bleeding
- -Urgent need to move bowels
- -Abdominal cramps and pain
- -Sensation of incomplete evacuation
- -Constipation (can lead to bowel obstruction)
- -Loss of appetite
- -Weight Loss
- -Night sweats
- -Loss of normal menstrual cycle
- -Intestinal Stenosis
- -Flatulence and Bloating
- -Aphthous ulcers
- -Growth Failure for young cases
- -malabsorption of carbohydrates, lipids and other nutrients
- -Increased risk of Osteoporosis
- -Increased risk of blood clots
- - seronegative spondyloarthropathy
The causes of Crohn’s Disease are not well understood. Diet and stress may aggravate Crohn’s Disease, but they do not cause the disease on their own. Recent research suggests hereditary, genetics, and/or environmental factors contribute to the development of Crohn’s Disease.
There is no cure for Crohn’s disease and remission may not be possible or prolonged if achieved. In cases where remission is possible, relapse can be prevented and symptoms controlled with medication, lifestyle and dietary changes, changes to eating habits (eating smaller amounts more often), reduction of stress, moderate activity and exercise.With treatment, most people achieve a healthy weight, and the mortality rate for the disease is relatively low.
Hope it is of help!
